Easier said than done. Some things are nearly impossible to attain. When you are being stabbed with a thousand poisoned knives, It will be very difficult to manage a smile. Maybe when the pain eases a bit, but until then, any thoughts of happiness will be just a wee bit hard to pull off.

Sweet blessed relief. Then run, run, run away as fast as you can, Never looking back.
Bill, This is a very well written 15 syllable poem you have penned for the contest. You used very good descriptive and very true words. Very interesting art work to go with your words. Best wishes in the contest. blessings, Teri
Good reminder in your 15 syllable poem. Yes there are plenty of reasons to have negative feeling with all the hate and division and climate trouble and pandemics. We need to remind ourselves there are still things worth being happy about..
