This language is hard

One shouldn’t even try to say

I can do this, Im on the right way

I know this is tough, but one must tell themselves

There is no point in working today

No one should ever think

This is worth it

It is clear that

Languages aren’t meant for me

So how can one say

The world is a playhouse.

This is dumb

It is a lie when you say that

This is not tough

However, whenever I have negative thoughts, my teacher always says

Read this poem, from bottom to top

This post has just become one of my favourites. Thank you for sharing. It is a great reminder that everything in life has two sides and we need to try to look at situations from more positives points of view. .. ;-))
