I think an appropriate first beginning would be to write positively… So here is my very rare attempt at optimistic poetry.

Rise above the ashes,

And conquer the skies,

Soar above the ugliness,

The pettiness… the lies.

Fight the chains of darkness,

And reach for the light,

And spread your wings in glory,

In freedoms splendid flight.

Be the one to reach the peaks,

That scale above the land,

Find the gold thats hidden,

In the glitter of common sand,

Sail the seven seas in a quest,

To discover something New,

Search the stars and learn,

The fate awaiting you.

Make warriors tremble,

By your very name,

Despise being ordinary,

Try never to be the same,

Challenge every obstacle,

And race through every course,

Shake the world and laugh,

As it succumbs to your force.

Find the strength inside you,

And let the fire burn,

Like a phoenix dry your tears,

And fly with all you have learnt,

Night time lasts only a little while,

Just like daylight doesnt last long,

But through the night and through the light,

Sing your own song..
