Because it rains when we wish it wouldn’t,
Because men do what they often shouldn’t,
Because crops fail, and plans go wrong-
Some of us grumble all day long.
But somehow, in spite of the care and doubt,
It seems at last that things work out.
Because we lose where we hoped to gain,
Because we suffer a little pain,
Because we must work when we’d like to play-
Some of us whimper along life’s way.
But somehow, as day always follows the night,
Most of our troubles work out all right.
Because we cannot forever smile,
Because we must trudge in the dust awhile,
Because we think that the way is long-
Some of us whimper that life’s all wrong.
But somehow we live and our sky grows bright,
And everything seems to work out all right.
So bend to your trouble and meet your care,
For the clouds must break, and the sky grow fair.
Let the rain come down, as it must and will,
But keep on working and hoping still.
For in spite of the grumblers who stand about,
Somehow, it seems, all things work out.

A feeling of emptiness,
amidst laugher and joy,
it feels so hollow;

- Life Smiles like a Sunshine
A laugh as it adds curve to ur face...
dispels the gloom and a sunshine to be

- Colors of Life
It's a rat race
the whole thing
this whole thing we call life;
sometimes I laugh
I lay down in the space, I call my room,
close my eyes and see different colors
explode under my eyelids;
- I Wish
laugh all day, cry all night,
always saying nothings wrong,
never wanting to admit
how you really feel inside
because all you really want
to do is run away and hide
