THE WHITE IN EVERY BLACK

In every hideous frown I see I know, relish and can tell The beauty and riches of a smile And I discover, The poverty of a frown. From every words spoken I learn and can tell The comfort and magic of good words Timely and rightly uttered And I can appreciate The pain and worthlessness of bad words Thoughtlessly expressed With every hatred I feel and enjoy The invigorating power of love And find The deadening weakness of hateful heart From every negative thought I see the light, the flight and might of positive ones And, The darkness, the failure and dullness of negative ones There is white in every black!
