Negative And Positive

Poem By Francis Duggan

The negative one feels hard done by and with living is struggling to cope
But the positive one though money poor in the darkest of moments sees hope
Our thoughts can be helpful or self defeatist some wise people are known to say
And those who disagree with such thinking are negative or seem that way
You show a negative one a flowering garden and weeds that person only does see
But the positive one can see blossoms blooming on an non blossoming tree
One is imbued with hope for the future and for he or she good times ahead
And the other is always crestfallen and see hope as something that's dead
It is true that we all are different and so few things on which we agree
But so often negative thinking to the soul is extreme poverty
In people of positive thinking hope does spring eternal 'twould seem
Whilst the negative one seems to suffer from depression and low self esteem
The feelings of negative and positive are different as different can be
One does look at life on the bright side and the other knows of misery.

A Ballad Of Wasted Years

I have walked through tougher Harlem where few strangers dare to go
And I've been in London City in the rain and in the snow
And I've worked in inner Melbourne in the searing summer heat
And believe me if I tell you I have earned the bread I eat.

A Beautiful Person With A Heart Of Gold

She sees things of beauty in all that she see
And what's beautiful to her seems ugly to me
What to her is a flower to me is a weed

The Sound Of Laughter

The sound of laughter is a thing of beauty for laughter spreads the very gift of joy
That people they are drawn to happy people is not that hard for to understand why
Since everybody wishes to be happy and laughter it spreads happiness around
And only the heartless could not like the sound of laughter for laughter is a very happy sound,

The Admirable Mo

My admiration for him it only does grow
For a braver one than he is of i may never know
