Misery (Poem)

It was a year of misery,

It was a life of misery,

I was living a story of misery,

I couldn’t escape the misery,

I wondered “How do I get out of this misery?”

 

I complained instead of finding a solution,

I blamed others instead of finding a solution,

I cried instead of finding a solution,

I was letting myself stay in misery instead of finding a solution,

It was harder to find a solution.

 

Yet one day I got tired of all the misery,

I got angry at myself for staying in misery,

I got angry at anyone who added to my misery,

Thus, one by one I said goodbye to those who added to the misery,

I was left completely alone with my misery.

 

I didn’t hear other voices,

I only heard my own voice,

It would’ve been difficult to get out of misery if I had listened to many negative voices,

It was already hard enough listening to my own negative voice,

I made it a rule to only listen to positive voices.

 

I needed to make the choice to want positive,

I had to make a choice not to want negative,

I needed to learn how to embrace the positive,

I needed to stop embracing the negative,

I eventually got out of the misery by embracing only the positive.
