We´ve all done it,

something good

comes our way

and rather

than shout Hooray!

we say Oh No!

Go away!

 

Like we like

the misery

of the moment.

We like the storm cloud

above our heads.

We prefer the dread.

The sun is shining

yet we stay in bed.

 

Maybe we don´t like

going up and down,

side to side,

round and round.

Sad, happy, afraid,

twenty times

a day…

 

No, lets just

stay in one.

Block out the sun,

for it will rain

again tomorrow.

So might as well

stay in the sorrow

and make lemons

from lemonade.
