10.17.2l Look for the Silver Linings (Poem, 2015)

Today, I share with you “Look for the Silver Linings” from December 4, 2015, from my poetry book of the same name for Nov-Dec 2015. It’s all about looking for hope, love and inspiration from just about any place… Sometimes your mood is determined by a simple choice… to be happy, and just let go. Enjoy! -BB


“Look for the Silver Linings” by Brian Bolding

*

Sometimes you’ve got to look

Look for the silver linings

They’re hiding, in between the dark turbulent skies

And the near yet distant slightly muffled cries

Sometimes you’ve got to look

Look for the silver linings

Even when you can’t go on, sometimes it’s hard

The dark times in life catches you off guard

Sometimes you’ve got to look

Look for the silver linings

They’re everywhere, you’ve just got to see

It’s how you look at things, it’s how you look at me

Sometimes you’ve got to look

Look for the silver linings

Even in the darkest nights and the darkest days

It can really lift your spirit, and in so many ways.

  1. A silver lining, for me, is accepting who I am and understanding that who I am is who I can expect to be now and forever. It isn’t that I can’t or won’t change. I see future change as part of the now-me. Change is built into who we are whether we like it or not. My silver lining is understanding that I’m a simple person, in all my bitter complexity.
