Open Your Eyes

Open your eyes,
And look more closely.
Sometimes that’s all it really takes.
Unless you are confused.

Then you need to open your mind.
Look deep, find what is troubling you.
Sometimes that is all it really takes.
Unless you are depressed.

Then all it really takes is a little hope.
A little laughter, a little smile.
And that is really all it takes.
So, don’t let life push you down.

Just stand back up.

I wrote this poem for my friend, who is always bringing herself down.
