“The Responsibility of Positivity”
By Ashley O’Hare
Always looking up,
searching for a silver lining.
Even with Winter’s chill in your bones,
take comfort in not being alone.
Spring will greet you with warmth-
a reward for your positivity and endurance.
Remember how the snow felt
as it seeped into your skin
before you cry about temporary rain
and a fit of wind.
Days are merely calendar dates.
They owe you nothing-
it is up to you to make them great.
Whether you being your journey to peace
or weep yourself to sleep,
the twenty-first of March
has no heart.
Morning will slip into night,
regardless of your fight.
