There are just dark clouds to be seen on this gloomy day,
And it looks like it will be just the same tomorrow.
That it’s making my own life feel so dull and grey,
I can feel myself filling with sadness and sorrow
Perhaps I just need to sit and think this all through,
Must this gloomy weather really make me feel sad?
For above those dark grey clouds, the sky is still blue,
And the birds are still singing, which makes me glad.
Whatever is happening in the world outside,
Does not mean that I have to be gloomy within.
From this dark and gloomy day, let’s no longer hide,
I will go and find something cheerful to begin!
Let’s ignore all of this gloom found within us,
It’s only living in there with our permission.
Let’s go for a ride on positivity’s bus,
And make finding love and happiness our mission.
