This work has reached the exceptional level
Our spirit can be uplifted with a smile!

Change is but a smile away!

by phil nelson

When life tries hard to get us down,
and turn our smile into a frown;
we must resist the change in mood,
and keep a happy attitude!

Sometimes the only way to win,
is face our troubles with a grin;
then look disaster in the eye,
and give this world another try!

When quick solutions can't be found,
or loser idiots abound,
we have to rise above the fray,
to take command, and seize the day!

Then with a smile, to wrest control,
from demons that would take our soul,
for everywhere there does exist,
a pain, to grind your joy to grist!

We can not let them drown our zest,
nor let depression beat our best.
When sadness does our spirits test,
the way to rise above the rest,
is face the morn with mirth and jest!
