if ninety nine souls say you’re great 
why concentrate on the one that hates? 
all your precious energy gone 
defending yourself against a wrong

complete and utter waste of time;
there will ALWAYS be one
it’s nothing you’ve done
they will hate for the sake

redirect your life beam 
towards positive souls
those that you love
and significant ones

don’t give the pessimists  
the power to engulf 
your world as you know it 
in a negative glow
