Positive thinking leads to positive results.


You Do
You do everything right
Yet everything is horribly wrong
They do everything wrong
Yet everything is beautifully right
What do you do right that is terribly wrong?
What do they do wrong that is magnificently right?
Is there a twist?
Why can’t you do everything right to get everything right?
And…
Why can’t they do everything wrong and get everything wrong?
They smoke,
They drink,
They party,
They do horrible things,
They get the good grades,
They get the boy,
They get the amazing friends,
They get asked to dances.
You study,
You you’re there when no one else is,
You listen,
You work,
You stay at home,
You give and give,
You don’t get the good grades,
You don’t get the boy,
You don’t get the great friends
You don’t get asked to dances.
So what do you get when you do everything right..
Nothing and the pure joy of being lonely..
So I hope it’s worth it.
You don’t get the boy
