“On The Bright Side” Poem

On The Bright Side

By Ashley O’Hare

On the bright side

hard times make for good stories.

I can put on a smile and tell the tale

of the moment my life ceased to be boring.

On the bright side

the salty tears running down my cheeks

make for a refreshing moisturizer;

clearing up my skin week after week.

On the bright side

I am never, ever alone.

There’s always someone in the shadows

seizing the opportunity to invade my home.

On the bright side

I never sleep the day away.

My mind is given the great task

of keeping my nightmares at bay.
