Middling Through

I’ve been smiling at the sky
which makes the sky happy
indulging in a positivity
you are right to mistrust

We’ve abused such notions
for as long as we’ve had them
taught ourselves temperance
when faced with simple joy

Here at the end though
permit me this rebellion
leave me at least with a smile
for the dark days ahead

In a year it might make sense
in five it might make none
but for now I’ve got the promise
of sunshine yet to come
