' On The Lighter Side - Poem by Linda Ori

Sprinkle smiles where frowns should be
Yes, life is tough, but so are we -
Dwell too long in misery
And happiness can never be;

Attitude turns things around,
Negative can't hold its ground
When laughter makes a sweeter sound
A positive can then be found;

Why hide out 'neath skies of gray,
Who needs another rainy day?
Gather gladness while you may
Let the sunshine light your way;

Soon whatever made you mad
Doesn't seem to be so bad,
Nothing gained from being sad,
Count your blessings and be glad!
