Pollyanna’s Creed

Pollyanna’s Creed

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.


Prompt words today are orange, sober, concedepetulant, beginning and concentrate.
