The Bright Side

Sometimes, my love, there is no silver lining
When one door closes
they all slam shut
You are a Mormon on a street of
atheists
Sometimes, my love, gray skies are gray
for such a long time you forget
what light is; it burns your eyes
And if you keep looking up
you get a stiff neck and
bird shit in your face

I'm rather speechless after that lolamouserants - you had me all sad and sentimental then you dropped shit on it! Always looking up indeed :)

Oh, that is so true! Sometimes nothing good comes of looking up! I appreciated your perspective.

Sometimes you eat the bear and sometimes it eats you. Well put.
