Finding Positivity



The scene is pictured

All in black and white

As a sweet young boy

Attempts to fly his kite


Looking around

Nobody else seems to be there

It looks as if he’s all alone

Without anyone to care


Determination marks

His pale small face

He’s never been considered more

Than a boy of disgrace


Now deep in thought

Concentrating with all of his might

He lets told negativity go

And readies his handmade kite


She’s a beauty for sure

And he’s determined to make her fly

Holding her steady against the wind

The release sends her soaring high


Proud of his accomplishment

He stands and he stares

Watching her fly over the earth

So very high up in the air


Much happier now

Than he’s ever quite been

He watches her intently

As she soars on the wind


Delighted in his success

He feels quite proud

He finally found a bit of positivity

By looking up toward the clouds
