All the people call me crazy

All the people call me crazy

All the people call me crazy
Cause I laugh, and dance, and sing
And live my life just for each moment
And take whatever life might bring
I know my face is always smiling
But I can’t help myself at all
I have to dance, and sing like crazy
Because it’s all so beautiful.

Maybe I should be unhappy
And join the cause of misery
Wear a long face each new moment
Not live my life so joyfully
I might try, but what would happen
I’d just be faking, yes I would
Because I feel so very happy
And life to me it feels so good

Well, you know, I just can’t help it
It’s just the way my life has gone
Every day does bring me pleasure
As all lifes joy goes on, and on.

So if they really think I’m crazy
All those folk who meet with me
Let them read my compositions
Then maybe all their misery
Will melt and they will fill with laughter
And that’s the only way to be
Then they’d live their life forever
So very, very happily.

    Hi Peter, spreading the joy once more In your own inimitable way. It gently sings off the page. Well, If I didn't feel my own Joy this write would put that joy right into my heart. Well If people call you crazy Peter, we definitely need more crazy In this world.Crazy...no. This is a philosophy for living life to the full. Think what kind of world we would live In If we all had joy In our hearts. More gold from you my Friend. Have a good day. Catch you later. Your Friend always....MIKE.

    Thank you Ilene. Happiness replaced the total misery of the PTSD I suffered for years, after I met John Sherman and done what he said. Now I am so very happy I can't believe myself. I appreciate your comments, my friend....Peter

    You are so right Sara. I was born with a smile on my face, but my service in the Vietnam washed it all away for years. Now, thanks to the help of John Sherman, I am the happiest man alive. I appreciate your comments, my friend...Peter
