Just One Word Of Advice - Poem by Francis Duggan

Just one word of advice from one lacking on insight
Live every day as if it were your last and one day you will be right
And try to enjoy life for time ticks on and on
Tomorrow is coming and yesterday has gone
Few wish to know those sad faced and feeling down
They are left to be as sad sacks of the town
The reason sad people not among the well known
Is that others do have enough cares of their own
And they need happy people to brighten their day
Since in joy there is light this is the human way
That in joy there is light few would disagree
At least anyhow that's how it seems to me
The one who always has a smile on his or her face
In any sort of company does not feel out of place.
