NEGATIVE TURNED POSITIVE
There are no means to take away
The negatives along this stay.
But turning negatives around
Transforms them into rich, new ground.
Being born with quick, sharp mind
When girls are not to be that kind,
Made me brunts of many jokes
From enemies, friends and other folks.
But!! Then I found that I could teach
To stretch the minds so they could reach
Heights and depths of brilliant size,
A healthy change before my eyes.
I also had "over-sensitivity"
I felt things whole-heartedly.
I couldn't brush things off and grin
To hide the feelings deep within.
But!! I also feel what bothers you
To help you know just what to do.
I comfort, talk and sympathize
To help you work through troubled lives.
We all are born with similar plight,
Things that never feel just right.
But!! Negatives turned to the positive side,
Magically transform this mysterious ride.
