Sometimes I get tired
of writing about my mind
and the awful stuff it can do
to an unsuspecting me.
Sometimes I wish I had
just enough talent to
articulate the beauty
of a passing butterfly.
My life always tends to
focus on the negatives.

sometimes we have to soak
in the negatives
of our celluloid scenes
in order to develop
and see the color
with in the world

Sometimes....
I bemoan the negatives
of something
Just
to feel good about the positive
...
And then
I almost
hate myself
for it

What do you do when you question life?
Do you dwell on the past or do you look forward to the future?
It's easy to remember the bad things we've been through but how often do we look back at the positive things and just smile?
Remembering the negatives and focusing on the bad is hardly going to help.
What if you embrace the now, live for today and remember tomorrow is a new day?
Wouldn't that be a better way to live life?
Life is too short to constantly think about regrets and what ifs.
Do you want to be someone who's life is dictated by worry or do you want to take risks and enjoy life while you can?
Do you let the best years of your life fly by or do you take control and lead the life you want to?
There's only one pilot controlling your life.
Make sure the journey is a memorable one.

i have a good feeling that if you put two pieces of paper in front of me and asked me to list negatives and positives about myself, not only would the negatives list be longer than the positives, i'd need more than one piece of paper

there is.
a ladybug on the ceiling.
there is nothing more.
maybe a lady on the negatives
on a 35mm in
a pawnshop.
but there is
a  ladybug on the ceiling.
they are the same
idk

We find ourselves always stuck in the between- the middle of a breakdown, the middle of a fight, the middle of a decision.
In the grey's instead of the blacks and whites of life.
In the undeveloped part of the film; the damaged part of the film.

Have you ever sat in the middle of your living room with a bottle of wine  and the windows slightly open in the middle of winter thinking about life?
I have.
Have you ever sat in the middle of the street in the middle of the night and wished silently to yourself this would all end if one car just turned that corner?
I have.

There's that word again... "Middle"
Which is such an ugly word the more I sit here and type it.
I want to be at the beginning of something.
I would even settle for the end of something just so I could restart again.

I have a hard time focusing on the present, which is also the middle of your life.
I'm always stuck in the past or wishing for the future...
Then again... I am the damaged part of the film.

I am the negatives that will not get developed for another couple years.

At times you speak with no filter
eyes shutter and life becomes darker.
Without the negatives
there are no positives.
Focus, you are your perfect picture.

I wish I could double my hope
like doubling the mount of Everest
And seal the despair
like sealing the sea with bunch of ices.
I wish I could focus on the bulls' eye
like focusing on my pimples.
And hit it from far
like hitting a nail into a wood.
I wish I could delete the negatives in me
like deleting files in my laptop.
And get rid of my enemy
like getting rid of viruses in my laptop.
I wish I could complete this poem
like writing alphabets from A to Z.
I wish I could
but I don't know when and how.
