We could spend forever

Dwelling on our wrongnesses

And voicing endless litanies

Of how horrible things are.

Or drive ourselves to apathy

By picking out and focussing

On our failures and our badnesses

Our foes remind us endlessly

Stick to us like tar.

But we find eventually

Self-inflicted negativity

Doesn't get us very far.

So look at all the rightnesses!

Forgot mid our despondency,

Accomplishments and positives.

Nobility and kindnesses

Spurning invitations to do otherwise

Comprise the towers and the bridges

That'll lift us to the stars.
