Let’s try fill our days with “happy”
Instead of those just sharp and snappy.
Let’s show the world our inner smile
And bin the face that looks hostile.
We’ll think more of the words we use –
Choose them as carefully as our food.
Don’t always pass on inner gloom
For other people to consume.
Try to give them kindness, caring.
Our hostile thoughts do not need airing.
There’s more to life than push and shove
When other people need our love.
Try to sweep black thoughts away.
And replace them in a sweeter way.
Let’s work some magic, wave a wand,
And then happy faces will respond.
