I was always told to look at the bright side
That every cloud has a silver lining and you've just got to see it
And now, it explains why I'm so obsessed with cleaning, polishing and scrubbing
till my hands hurt
till I'm drained
tll I feel like why after so much, there's still no glimmer of shine?
And I just wish someone had told me,
that sometimes, there is no bright side and that it's still okay
Maybe..maybe then, I'd have been better at accepting harsh realities instead of having false hopes and hurting my heart.
Positivity doesn't always mean having optimistic hopes, but also, just accepting reality and then moving forward from there.
