Synonyms & Antonyms

A poem by Beverly Stock.

If Arrogant, be Humble.

If Single, go get Married. If Random, be Specific.

If you're Awful, be Terrific.


Up or Down, it’s direction.

Turn Flawed into Perfection.

Don't be Afraid, be Confident.

Insults? No! Give Compliments.


Be you Simple or Complex,

A Brave or Cowardly mate

Know that Awful can be Great.

Don’t Destroy, love and Create.


Be not on constant Attack,

But stand tall and Defend.

Any Optimist can see

Pessimism doesn’t win.


Liquid can be a Solid.

On that we can all agree.

Positive can turn Negative, When Full becomes Empty.


Let’s all hail the Amateurs

Who become Professionals

That's a Negative turned Positive

Like Bad into Incredible.


The Poem is shouting loudly

Before Sunshine turns Cloudy,

Triumph melts into Defeat.

And Beautiful turns Dowdy….


End it here.
