With your loud mouth
And your repetitive negative spew
Keep it loud – I can tune you out
As you say whatever you thought you knew
Because the things that are yelled from rooftops, rarely come to pass
But those whispered deep in our hearts
And they last
*there is something about negativity that chokes itself. We don’t need to comment or interfere no matter how being close can make it frustrating at times
Gossips who say the most revolting things about other people seem to eventually emit a stink that everyone tries to steer clear of
Naysayers and put-down artists end up sinking themselves beneath the judgemental weight of all those opinions – plus, most of what they vehemently say won’t work with a scornful sneer – comes to pass and works out brilliantly
It’s as if God has a sense of humour and wisdom and grace
That those people who annoy so many, annoy him too?
And the other side of the coin is the optimists, the kind, the gentle, the people who spread love and light up a room with their smiles. They are magnetic, full of warmth and sideways joyful eyes that make you chuckle with delight.
It can seem sometimes like the negative harpies with their sense of outrage and constant lamenting and fermenting are taking over the world, but they are not.
Keep smiling. Spread the light, and protect yourself from people intent on blowing it out. 💕🦋
