The Path of Positivism

The Path of Positivism
The Path of Positivism

Unlimited, the projection of positivism,
the vast and beguiling force of right,
driven to manifestation through purposeful thought,
yet still there are those of negative intention,
who feed from the egos perversity,
and in thoughtless spite, oppose reason.

I watch bewildered at their dim suppositions,
flawlessly hindering their own learning
by the out of hand dissemination of lies,
just to be obstinate, seemingly in control,
a symptom of insecurity
and the over zealous compensation of the persona.

Such games people play,
the energy from which could be utilized for so much gain,
rather than petty strikes from a wanting soul,
intent on uplifting yet proving ineptitude,
and in placation, no advantage at all;
I’ll never understand this cycle of thinking.

For me, being positive is a necessity of life,
and falling for demeaning thoughts of darker intent
just makes me feel unclean,
as if tainted by unworthy circumstance,
so in response to such attitudes,
I must either point out the negative
or leave the situation in a state of irresolution.

The older I get, the less able I am emotionally
to put up with persistently negative types,
their dishonesty and game playing a frustration
I am no longer willing to accept,
so I seek the stability and support of positive people,
who can relate and share their lives openly.

Within a life of positive intention,
reality is in plain sight, trust never becomes an issue,
and friendship and sharing is a joy of being
rather than something sought,
and with trust comes love,
an appreciation of who we are and what we offer.

    Very inspiring and well penned work, Tony. During my career life I was usually seen as an anti-social employee, because I could not abide all the negative gossip and back-stabbing during breaks and lunch. I found peace by going outside to walk or taking a break alone. Even in family, there was negative talk about whoever was not present – I just could not take it and became a loner, avoiding gatherings. Negativism is so damaging to everyone. It took a long time to break away, but, I now enjoy life by embracing positive thoughts and conversations. Your verse is great. I agree with you: the older I get, the less I can tolerate negativity – breaking free makes for a much more loving and happy life.

    Glad you agree, the damage others can cause us is far greater than we can imagine, and like you I keep clear and prefer positive influences and the calm of peace, even if that means I am alone. Take care dear friend.
