Not So Simple

They always say
Look for the silver lining
And so we search
But it isn’t so simple
As they say

Don’t be negative
They tell us
So we look for happier things
But it isn’t so simple
As they say

Don’t judge by looks
They insist
So we close our eyes
And let our heart guide us
But it isn’t so simple
As they say

Follow your heart they whisper
So we try to take chances
And chase our dreams
But it isn’t so simple
As they say

Follow our advice
They scold
So we try
To find the silver lining
To stay positive
To look at what’s inside
And to chase our daydreaming hearts
But it isn’t so simple
As they say
