flip it

talking to myself and feeling old
like festering mold
sometimes i’d like to quit
nothing ever seems to fit
hanging around, some kind of lonely frown
rainy days and mondays always get me down

this post is dedicated to pc who shared the “flip”
like a flip wilson-to-geraldine glib
like camomile instead of absinthe sip
turn your palm over and flip in a clip
do a tango dip
instead of guilt vibes keep

flip financial gloom and emotional toss
to “eat less-exercise more” weight loss
flip job loss
to new directions and opportunity gloss
roll dicey stone and gather moss
i lost brain cells but gained stature of a being c.i.a boss

flip confidence in pain
to anchoring in loved ones gain
like hannah’s cup of tear stains from penninah hurt strains
to sweet poetic song of hannah refrains

flip disappointment
to not-meant-to-be and shift to give hilarotes annointment
instead of seething wrath
flip double, double, toil and trouble
to bubble-bubble
but not douse ’em in bubble bath

flip fear
put on faith goggles to see through fog clear
convert to new discovery cheer
new tracks to brave steer

they told negativity don’t u ever come around here
don’t wanna see your face, u better disappear
the fire’s in their eyes and their words stab like spear
so flip it, just flip it

u better run, u better do what u can
don’t wanna see no blood, don’t be a macho man
u can be positively tough, uplift weight of spirit all u can
so flip it, just flip it, flip it

flip it, flip it
no one wants to be defeated
showing how funky strong is your fight
it doesn’t matter who’s wrong or right
just flip it, flip it

u have to show them that you’re really not scared
you’re playin’ with your life, this ain’t no truth or dare
they’ll kick u, then they beat u,
then they’ll tell u it’s fair
so flip it, u don’t wanna be bad or sad

so don’t harbor gloom and doom
flip it to allow blessings bloom
give a thanksgiving boom

flip to philippians 4:8 insight
“fix your thoughts on what is true and honorable and right
think about things that are pure lovely and of admirable might

think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise”
most of all, thank Him for His love and grace
adversity to counter, flip to face and erase
