The poem(s) are below...



Today I will be happy,
Happy all day long.
I won't think about my problems.
I'll fill this day with song.

I won't worry about world affairs,
Or ask the reason why,
Some folks do the things they do,
And wring my hands and sigh.

I won't worry over hurtful things,
That people sometimes say.
I'll ask The Lord to bless them,
When I bow my head to pray.

Petty things that just annoy,
Of these things I won't speak.
I'll be happy as a little bird,
With a french fry in my beak.

    Can I assume that all is well now and you can see the world perfectly?
