Happier Choice

Happier Choice.... for Poets Rally Week 40


Ah, life is happy
We make it sad
By often thinking wrong
How silly and bad

Let us think of moonlight
While walking under the Sun
All the heat and dust
Will seem to be fun

Let us talk about stars
With a dry dead leaf
Fill heart with smiles
Wiping out the grief

Cherish little things
Like a mole on a dame's chin
A child's blowing nose
And a monkey's naughty grin

Let us think of aroma around
Amidst thorns when we walk
And sing romance in mind
When there's a hurting talk

Lets be always happy
By making thinking right
And make life beautiful
Cheerful, smiling and bright..

  2. Indeed, we can be happy if we choose. It is a mystery that we do not always choose happiness!

  9. That is another one of your best poems I have read RS!! Love the simplicity of thoughts and expressions creating such beautiful pictures in the mind that one can remember long after reading it too!! Love that dame with the beauty spot on her chin and the monkeys grin ...LOL :D
    The central idea is so very well summed in the last stanza ~
    "Lets be always happy
    By making thinking right
    And make life beautiful
    Cheerful, smiling and bright.."

    Well done RS!!

  11. Oh! That's exactly what my philosophy of life is! :D Life is how we approach it. If we make ourselves think positively and cherish every little moment, world will seem brighter and we will enjoy ourselves more. Love it!

  12. Its not that I don't think its well written, I just disagree with the sentiment. People only stand in their own way so much.

    A pretty fantasy, but nonetheless well written. Nice work.

  25. So true. We often get lost in the so called 'big' problems of life and stop enjoying life's little pleasures. Enjoyed the poem immensely.

  26. So simple...so true....and many a times, in this rigamarole called life...we just dont realise the beauty around us...the simple power of thinking positive...

    Thanks for sharing.
