The Eternal Optimist



The world needs a little Good news everyday Just look on the bright side It's better that way Kick up your heels Say howdy my friends Just smile at a stranger Your woes you'll transcend On the verge of disaster Show them there's hope To look at this world Through a much larger scope It may be contagious You'll start a new trend Who knows it might happen You'll make a new friend I know that the cynics Will laugh and they'll scoff To think that us humans Past sins we can doff We've got to start somewhere So why not right now The world will stop fighting And wars disavow Just call me a dreamer I welcome that name Don't need any medals No fortune or fame The best compensation A world filled with joy Where everyone's happy And spirits are buoyed We can't let our efforts Just end up in vain We must see a world Where happiness reigns It's crucial for us To succeed in this quest Else mankind will perish My case I do rest © Jack Ellison 2014

    Ahhh. The eternal optimist just like Dragon. Even when Dragons plans go amiss... He's still sure every thing will work out... Cough! Cough!...He just looks to Grandpa Troll and me to fix it... Sigh!... But Gotta love an optimist! PS. Gail Angel Doyle is back and is sponsoring a contest! Can you say 'SMILING...' Dragon must of learned optimism from me... LOL
