Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.
Most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be.
-- Abraham Lincoln
Not hoping for the day to bring me some cheers
I'm greeting my morning with smile on my face
something I've been doing for number of years
mobilizing happy feelings in my personal space.
Not waiting for circumstances to give me green light
here I go crossing briskly over crappy temptations
smiling, with a silver lining on every cloudy night
and filling my every day with my own creations.
I can't afford to depend on merciful donations
from those in my life who may give me praise
to recharge my batteries for higher vibrations
or to guide me out from an emotional maze.
And neither am I praying to heavens above
to give my life blessings and a nice break
for my peace, my happiness, and love
are always up to me to give and take.
So goes my story from one chapter to another
with a self-made joy and it's benefits galore
with nothing seen as a reason to bother
and how can I ask for anything more.
