Sweet

Sweet

A Poem by Tabby Mac
"

We all have a choice...it takes action...sit in our pity and blame others? Or rise up and be sweet?

"
Bitter or sweet.
Which shall I be?
It’s easy to let the negativity get to me.
But, when I do...
my mind becomes a zoo.
Poor me, should of, could of...
if only...
NO MORE!
“Get out the door!”
I have faith, now where’s my trust?
I must focus or bust!
Just be...conquer it with positivity.
I don’t need the world.
I only need enough.
We really don’t need all of this stuff.
Be the good, be the light...do what feels right.
No not following pleasure!
For it leads to a temporary treasure.
Be the hero, be the help,
don’t let your fear make you yelp.
For if I let myself be small...
bitterness will be my fall.
I must fill myself up. Take time to recharge.
To be sweet I must think large.
I shall abandon these useless thoughts
The ones that keep me tied in knots.
Rise up. Be sweet!
Bitterness you have been beat!

Very Sweet! Nicely written. It's hard to be nice and sweet all the time, but we must strive to be and always ooze out positivity in our thoughts and deeds. We are doing ourselves a favour by being nice/sweet and not otherwise. This write is a reminder for us to move in that direction, liked the message in this poem.
Thanks Tabby, for sharing.

It takes grest strength and determination to focus on positivity
and to rid oneself of the negative that can come to us all so easily. To be happy, you have to dispel those shipwreck thoughts that can turn us into bitter lemons. Strong message. Lovely to see your smiling face again. Be safe Tabby.

Sometimes it is difficult to be sweet, especially Monday mornings where the first person you speak to for some unknown reason does your head in. I do notice come Friday I tend to hug people from two metres sending positive waves in their direction. Just realised I should only work on Fridays. Ying and yang, or is it yang and ying.

I like it. I admire your attitude and the way you really stand firm in your faith. I'm still learning to do that..... and the learning curve seems great.
Be sweet. Not bitter.
I am good at wearing a smile while I hold bitterness in my heart. I don't want to be bitter anymore.

Tabby Mac,
This is a poem about growth. Maturity dwelling within faith and how that is applied to our day to day life. Life is housed within us and emanates from us in many ways all around us. This was like watching birds out on a lake which are busy in their own community and interacting together. Does fighting help? Commandeering our own way? It is beautiful when we realize that we are imperfect together. All of us. God is perfect. In Him is no darkness at all. He loves us and desires to teach us His perfect ways. Many times it feels like three steps forward, two steps back. At least to me.
Bless you Tabby.

I'm not a big rhyme fan...but for some pieces, thematically, and for the sake of the pace, it works.
As I think it does here...this poem felt like a horse trotting at a nice pace...as Dickinson would say.."like a coursers page of prancing poetry"
like it.
