Things always look brighter behind a smile.

If I should quit
Will I ever know
How seeds set
Burst and grow

Never would I see
Them bud and bloom
If I lock myself away
In a darkened gloom

Cry yes I can
If things go wrong
Sing to myself
My self pity song

Let my soul
Be consumed with black
But no that isn't me
I will always fight back

Wipe tears from my eyes
Dusting off my jeans
Search out light and color
Playing on nature's screens

Observing flowers bloom
Animals as they freely roam
Butterflies flitting their wings
Around my garden gnome

Surrender is not an option
I can never quit living life
Blessings I have many
Even if packed with strife

Maybe a bit slower
I still hobble along
Don't need to sing
My self pity song
