From Scratch

A poem about being positive and optimist and making beneficial changes.

From Scratch

Although it’s not spring, I’ve started cleaning up
My thoughts, my feelings and, generally, my life.
I ran into some frustrations and unfinished business from a long time ago.
I also found some unanswered questions,
A few dissatisfactions and some serious needs.
While searching, there came out
Some hidden fears
And several personal faults.
I lined them up on the table and looked at them.
“I wonder if that’s all” I said. Let’s look for more.
Here are some negative and totally non constructive thoughts, out with them!
I don’t need any pessimism or boredom, either!
What’s this routine doing here?
It should be replaced with new and interesting things.
I also found some harsh words and a few awkward silences,
Unsatisfied wishes and unaccomplished dreams.
I took them all and threw them out.
Except for my needs and wishes and dreams.
I’m keeping them, ‘coz that’s what cancers do, they keep lots of memories, even though they’re no good.
But this time, these needs and wishes and dreams are gonna be good for something.
They’re gonna help me start a new life,
Now that I’ve cleaned up and made room for more.
Only from now on I'll only gather
Positive thoughts, happy smiles,
Tears for joy, laughter and games with happy-end.
I’m starting from scratch and it feels great!
See? I’ve already started!

Thank you, you've made my day! :) This means a lot to me as I'm not native in English, so your appreciation of my style is a long-awaited confirmation.
