Dealing With Downers

Disappointment quote with pic of a puppy dog
Image from OctPoWriMo

Don’t entertain those

Dogged disappointment days

Dismiss and disown

Them from depressing your life

Discuss your problems

Resolve to dissolve

Seek the positive

Discover ways to overcome

Don’t let despondency win

Choka

There’s always failure. And there’s always disappointment. And there’s always loss. But the secret is learning from the loss, and realizing that none of those holes are vacuums.” —Michael J. Fox

OctPoWriMo Day 18–Disappointment prompt

Posted in Minute, October 2018, OctPoWriMo 2018

Time Lord

Clock faces

Don’t let any moment slip by

Cus hours tend to fly

Seconds march on

Til life is gone

And the clock hands can’t be delayed

Minutes fade

The hourglass runs

No past reruns

Your life’s chronology is now

Present avow

Future gain

Not live in vain.
