Do not let the things you cannot do interfere with the things that you can do

No great artist ever sees things as they really are. If he did, he would cease to be an artist.

Seeing him sitting alone in a restaurant, midday.
An immediate sign of someone alone,
A lone crow in a desolate field of snow.
Sorrow was the feeling that was felt.
Walked right up and said a friendly hello.
In need of a friend is what was asked.
His bright blue eyes sparkled,
Like a crystal clear lake,
Full of swimming guppies.
Catching a glimpse of a grin, taking a seat, shot a smile right back.

A love bird without a loving match.
Sitting alone on a bench near riverside.
A feeling of emptiness inside a deep unfilled heart.
Dark brown eyes droop like the leaves of a withering vegetable.
Reasons for living leave and the thoughts rush in.
Immersed with mournfulness and just a thought of hope.
A soul is alive for as long as it chooses to live.
Choosing love over loss, moving on day to day is the thing to do.

The world, a horrid place, a beautiful place.
A war with a mockingbird flying overhead.
A simple black cat walking past a lovely couple.
Hate or love, mourning or smiling.
Hard time get worse before a sign of hope.
Make a friend, keep a friend, love a friend.
Life is short but the longest thing you’ll ever do.
