Can Do

As I drove across the bridge

Pondering the difference between positivity and pessimism,

A great big bird joined me.

I am a pelican

They said,

Not a pelican’t

The antidote for negativity is not however positivity,

It is compassion…

Telling someone they should fly

might only highlight that they have no wings…

Being with them in their struggle

Can show them flight is possible.

Even for those of us who lack feathers.
