When the world is cold and grey, I try to think another way
I think of rainbows, I think of hearts
I think of bunny rabbits and parks
I think of sunshine, whilst it rains
I think that life is just a game
I don’t dwell on gloom and glum
For bad thoughts are not my chums
I train myself almost everyday
To learn to think this other way
Though it is hard, but it can be done
I should know, for I once lacked sun
I dwelt in darkness and pity and shame
That’s something I won’t do again
But let it be known that my poems can be dark
But that’s just because I know the flowerless park
I have been there, but it doesn’t mean I dwell within it
I am here to teach you, how to spin it
Right around, so you can know
How to bring sunshine to melt the snow
So, when you are feeling down in the dumps
Don’t lean back upon your stump and think of woe is me, for I am woed
Just think of teddy bears dressed in gold
Think of strong arms lifting you up and think of things to cheer you up
Don’t sit and think about the pain or else you will get soaked in rain
Run around with your spirit free; think of all the happiness and glee
It’s your mind you’ve got to train!
Even if you don’t remember it, just sit back and then invent it
What will make you happy today? Now don’t get sarcastic make it pure and true
What would you have if you could make anew?
What sings to your soul and makes you vibrant?
Then go to that place in your head, be a migrant!
Because you won’t get better if you intend to dwell on all the things that makes life hell!
Only you can find your heaven
Just think about it for a moment or seven
Think about it until it’s true
Don’t let depression rule over you!
