I was really feeling the negativity when I wrote this one. Let me know what you think !

Sunshine Child

You smile.

The type of smile that reels you in.

Your features are blurred

But that universal greeting

Welcoming features beaming

It grows in my memories

A wonderfully corrupting weed that germinates

And with its loveliness captivates

Sunshine child, you radiate

Unto this darkness that surrounds

A beautiful paradox that compounds

My thoughts that I am dead inside

A hopeless, sunken parasite

Our ideologies collide

The world is not sunshine and roses

But sunshine child you do protest

Some measured optimistic doses

Would not go amiss. But what I’ll do

I’ll heed your words but posit mine

Nothing matters. Nor do you.
