Smile And The World Smiles With You

It's the first day of the rest of my life I'm feeling reborn Filled with great anticipation Wondering what exciting things Lie just ahead It seems it's all up to us We're the ones steering my ship If things don't turn out bright and cheery We only have ourselves to blame However I am not unique Everyone controls their own destiny I've learned this fact early on There's a time honoured old saying Smile and the world smiles with you Cry and you cry alone So very true!!! So when you're feeling down And it seems like the whole world is against you Just smile to yourself It doesn't matter who's watching Soon the sun will come out And you'll have a brighter cheerier outlook To overcome anything this old world can throw at you To be honest, there are times I have trouble following my own advice But then I remember these uplifting words Smile and the world smiles with you © Jack Ellison 2014

Yep! Keep smiling... I find some of the people in this world are just too serious!Even here at PoetrySoup... So I write for fun.... And the Father's Day contest was for fun... It was to enjoy the work of writers about their Fathers.... And everyone got a first place. I'm not about to judge work that HONORS their Fathers! Dragon agreed... We read everything a zillion times and agreed... They were all worthy of that post. Happy Father's Day Jack!
