Fear protects us from danger Anger fights against problems Sadness connects us with loved ones Disgust makes us reject What's unhealthy Without fear, much more would've died Making lives miserable of left behind Much more would've been leading disabled lives Begging more common sight Without disgust harmful substances We would've consumed Inviting dreadful diseases unhealthy life As unpleasant as they're We can't deny Negative things do serve Important purposes in our lives After experiencing negatives Importance of positives We realise Enhanced and appreciated values we enjoy Negatives compel us Invent ways so we survive Take us on an evolutionary path So you're what you're today And I am the man I am today Smile!
Positive emotions make us feel good. But negative emotions are also important in life. This poem is an attempt to bring forth this truth.
Whoever needs to hear it: abuse is abuse no matter what kind. Physical, mental, verbal, ******, none of it is OK. It will never be OK. Whoever needs to hear it: men, women, non binary, however you identify yourself, just because you "can take it" doesn't mean you should have to. Whoever needs to hear it: you didn't do anything to deserve it. Whoever needs to hear it: you have nothing to be ashamed of. It's OK to ask for help. And Whoever needs to hear it: you matter.
