Do Not Take Life Too Seriously - Poem by Francis Duggan

Do not take life too seriuously as time quickly ticks away
And soon you will be older and using hair dye to cloak your gray
Few wish to know the sad faced one as some are known to say
You may as well be happy and laugh all through the day
The happy and the carefree their friends in numbers grow
These are the sort of people that others wish to know
If you tell other people about your bad luck year
They may feign interest but your story they would prefer not to hear
That laughter is the best of medicine to everyone does apply
And those with happy dispositions their friends do multiply
But such is understandable those with the inner glow
Will always be the people that others wish to know
Those who complain of their hard lives others find hard to bear
But everybody seems to like those who seem free of care.
