the two cheery voices on the podcast advised
to ask yourself what would happen if you ignored it.
sometimes trying is not good enough
regardless of the white picket fences separating
happiness from sadness,
I can end up on the wrong side of it
looking for the gate,
feeling slightly guilty at succumbing
and another voice reminds me that above the
clouds is an eternal blue sky
but sometimes I need to get drenched in
the pouring rain
and only then can I come out into the sun.
