From My Heart

Poem By chidiebere franklin

Why waste your time on worry stress and woe
For life is brief and time quickly ticks away
And why stress yourself about things you cannot change
Since worrying leaves you looking old and gray.

The billionaire does find it hard to sleep at night
Of a stock market collapse he does live in fear
He is not a very happy man at all
Despite his billions that does seem sad to hear.

The ageing woman worries about her health
She has not been feeling at all well of late
She may as well make the most of the time she has left
And enjoy life since time on none does wait.

Why waste your time in worrying about life
For worrying never seems to change a thing
You may as well be happy whilst you may
And enjoy your life and dance and laugh and sing.

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
