They're never wrong and always right
Though others may dispute this
For subjectivity prevents
Naysayers to refute this.
The way you feel is how you feel;
The trick is how you handle
The downers so their flames
Remain like those upon a candle.
For otherwise you'll lose control
And soon a conflagration
May spiral to a point where others
Feel some consternation.
So get a grip and take a breath
Although you might be reeling.
You may choose not to share the way
You are (correctly!) feeling.
