Pulling in Opposite Directions

The plaintive wail of the wind
Whispers to me from outside
It calls to the sadness in me
Kindred spirits of melancholy
My heart surrenders to it
Pulling me into the pitch
But my mind
My mind and soul
Work in unison
With the knowledge
That I have acquired
They advocate for joy
For hope and happiness
That can still be found
They pull the strings
That weigh the corners
Of my sullen lips down
They pull
Upwards
To the sunshine sky
A glimpse of a smile
There is possibility
