Learn positive thinking. Count your blessings, not your sorrows.
|HALF GLASS SYNDROME—a sonnet
When all is dark and troubles are galore,
When life is like a torture in prison;
Being on the brink, when you can’t take more,
When for your travails you see no reason;
When you led a proper and pious life,
But for this you were never rewarded;
When you took due care of the kids and wife,
But despite this were blamed and discarded;
Then do you blame them or the Creator?
Do you then feel frustrated, angry, ill?
Don’t ever be the creation’s hater.
There’s plenty in life to be thankful still.
With half an empty glass why feel awful?
Thank Him your glass is as much as half-full.
