CAN YOU

Can you;
find beauty in things not pleasant to the eyes?
Can you;
be nice to people you don't recognize?

Can you;
find sunshine, on a rainy day?
Can you;
remain silent when you have things to say?

Can you;
fight when you're tired to the bone?
Can you;
call it quits, leave well enough alone?

Can you;
be ok, in the lonely moments?
Can you;
stay strong in the midst of disappointments?

Can you;
take it all in stride?
Can you;
in the face of chaos, pocket your pride?

Can you;
wear a smile, when you want to cry?
Can you;
be ok in the blink of an eye?

Can you;
believe in things you can't, see?
Can you;
hear the music if it's off key?

Can you;
really expect tomorrow to come?
Can you;
still feel pain when your numb?

Can you;
get up and do what needs to be done?
Can you;
figure out when it's time to cut and run?

Can you;
still believe when you know there is no way out?
Can you;
change your opinion when you know beyond a shadow of doubt?

Can you;
be kind to someone you have taking a dislike to?
Can you;
help someone out in worse shape than you?

I like this, I am afraid that it will become your primary mode of writing! I do like it, however, I will caution you that it can become a habit hard to break and that may not be a good thing. I do like the story and I will admit that it is very well put together. ~ Geezer.
