The Tender Years

by Cynthia Ruth Lewis

I've been told
that I'm far too intense about things;
that I'm much too negative, bitter
and cynical regarding people, situations
and life in general
they say
it's a shame to view everything in a bad light,
to always be doubtful of outcomes,
expecting only the worst
they tell me
to attempt putting things
in a different perspective;
try looking at the world
through the eyes of a child
I tell them
that depends on the child
