River Of Joy

When you cross the river of joy
don’t look back, at the disappointments you leave behind.
Think of the life ahead
and the happiness you will have.
Think of the lessons you have learnt
in the troubled times that plagued your life.
Look towards the rising sun on the horizon
that brings you a new dawning day.

    Some good advice given in this poem that encourages positive thinking. I like to think I can do this, but it's sometimes easier said than done. lol
