When she was sad,

she could see those

on the other side

shining in the sun.

They weren’t far away,

and they flashed their smiles

whenever they noticed her.

She was on the side of sadness,

while the other side

was prosperous and satisfied.

Her shirt was messy

while those celebrating

on the other side

wore new outfits for summer.

Her thoughts sat in silence,

while the other side’s thoughts

threw themselves up in the air

like performers.

She saw their thoughts

swinging and soaring,

while her thoughts

wept for themselves.

What was strange

was that she easily

could have stepped across

to join the festivity.

She just never understood

that straightforward fact.
