Shaun Cronick


You have to laugh in life,
Accept things as they are.
All its sadness and happiness,
Are forever near and far.

Some wear a permanent frown,
As they go from day to day.
While others prefer to smile,
They're simply made that way.

Many gaze up at the stars,
Some look down into a grave.
All life's positive attributes,
Are made to eternally save.

So always keep your chin up,
Let the light shine on you.
And never let darkness triumph,
Your life is to live up to.

And please comfort one another,
When the way is often dreary.
Each life can live a good life
And each heart grow never weary.

    Nice sentiments expressed here. Although I tend to like a good old moan (a british trait I think..that's why I love Tony Hancock's humour) , when I'm tutoring I'm always very positive and happy. it certainly makes a difference. It's social media and the rest of the incessant crap that tends to get me down. Perhaps, it's best just to surf over all the chaos as alas it's not going to go away. Anyway, it's a keep one's chin up inspired ten from me!
