Poems from a Family Man
More ups, less Downs
Whenever you’re troubled, whenever you’re down
Try to smile, it’s harder to frown.
Speak to your family, phone your friend
You’ll find in time the problem will mend.
Nothing is ever as bad as it seems
Everyday hopes can be tomorrow’s dreams.
We all have bad days, we all have good
It’s better to talk, it’s no time to brood.
No matter your downs, ups aren’t far away
I’m speaking from experience, I thought I’d just say.
Human beings are all destined for a bit of badness
It’s part of the trials – ultimately sadness.
It’s part of trials and tribulations
Forty per cent bad days, but sixty, celebrations.
I believe in the power of positive thinking
Although there are times when I feel like I’m sinking.
I try to look ahead for possibilities, and hope
It’s the way to get through, a good way to cope.
