Forging On... - Poem by David Lessard

When this life becomes too weary,
and storm clouds hide the day;
shrug off the doldrums of your mood,
greet with joy what comes you're way.

Smile and say, I'm feeling better,
the blues were but a quick distraction;
the sadness came but for a moment,
now I'm ready for any action.

It's the positive that does the trick,
just saying yes instead of no;
others lose their cool and drift,
the trick? Go on with the flow.

Laugh aloud and laugh quite often,
share the joy that makes you go;
be a friend to all you meet,
let your inner being glow.

Forge on ahead with quiet meaning,
life's a battle you can win;
before the batteries wind down,
and you come to your end.

    yes, laugh at the madness around you- laugh until your ribs get tough (as Lorde says)
    i love laughter and i find humor in almost everything...
    so, laugh on, poet! and use that duracell battery wisely :) (Report) Reply
