A Total Blast



I'm in one of my happy moods Don't know the reason why Sure is better than a downer mood My friends would wonder why Always try to be upbeat each day Sure can be difficult at times Some days are much more challenging There's just no reason or rhyme It's probably just mind over matter We're always the one in control If you choose to wear a dirty big smile It'll do wonders for your soul I'm sure some of you guys are saying That's easier said than done But perseverance is surely the key So stick at it, life's full of fun In troubling times try to remember All the good things you possess You'll find the dark clouds will disappear With happiness you'll soon be blessed Really don't need no fortune or fame Material things don't always last Happiness is the greatest companion Your life will be a total blast! © Jack Ellison 2013

    Blast? Cool! I hadn't thought of that! What would happen if I lite a fire cracker under that silly dragon! I bet it'd be fun... LOL... or I'd probably be put in time out by Grandpa Troll... Some times you just can't win... But I'll never stop trying!... LOL

    Fabulous! I love to be upbeat as well my friend, life is too short to be so gloomy! But as you said, some days you can't help it, no matter how much you try you just can't get out of the gloomy phase...but for me it only lasts a day or less! I'm naturally a happy person, my life really is quite good, if you look at what I have, everything looks really good! For one I have such good friends like you that I can rely on to cheer me up! Your poetry is always a pick me up! Fantastic Work Jack!!
