Why so wan and petulant, so sober and contrary?
Concede that negativity that you sometimes carry.
Concentrate on cheerful things. Begin a new beginning.
Convert all your losses from losing into winning.
Remove the somber funeral veil from your mournful head
and buy a vivid orange hat to wear on it instead.
Life’s too short for sadness that you carry like a weight.
Every time you smile, you’ll feel it dissipate.
That cloud above your head will lift and light will filter in
and you’ll feel a happier time of life begin.
