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
With every hatred
I feel and enjoy
The invigorating power of love
The deadening weakness of hateful heart
From every negative thought
I see the light, the flight and might of positive ones
The darkness, the failure and dullness of negative ones
There is white in every black!
