When troubles hang about the shoulders
Weighing down like heavy boulders
Think then of some better days
When life and fate led other ways
Ahead, your road has twists and turns
But not all are bad for one who learns
There’s always chance to change direction
With careful thought and more reflection
Every life has its ups and downs
Each their share of smiles and frowns
Look to yourself, no other’s load
To seek and find the happy road
Happiness isn’t just ‘out there’ to be had.
You have to make your own.
