We can’t just ‘escape’,
For…that isn’t very good;
But, we can change our attitude,
In fact…we should!
We all face unpleasant things,
Things that we must go through;
We have a choice…just how we do it,
What do you choose to do?
I’m, tired of grumbling and complaining,
That’s not the way to get things done;
With a change of attitude,
We can make everything…fun!
So COLOR ME HAPPY…from now…on,
Paint a bright yellow…right over the black;
Where there is darkness,
Open the window…just a crack!
Where there is wrong,
Take a stand for what is right;
Turn the other cheek…often,
Don’t join in…with the fight!
Run from ‘doom and gloom’,
Don’t give voice to the negative;
Turn all of that around,
By always speaking…positive!
Far more is accomplished,
When we choose to build;
Anyone can tear-down…destroy,
But, to build-up…that’s for the skilled!
COLOR ME HAPPY and I shall color you,
In bright shades of pink…purple…and green;
Let’s paint the whole world…HAPPY,
Happier than we’ve ever seen!
