The Town of Don't You Worry
Poet: L. J. Bartlett
There's a town called Don't-You-Worry,
On the banks of River Smile,
Where the Cheer-Up and Be-Happy,
Blossoms sweetly all the while.
Where the Never-Grumble flower,
Blooms beside the fragrant Try,
And the Never-GIve-Up and Patience
Point their faces lo the sky.
In the Valley of Contentment,
In the province of l-wlll,
You will find this lovely city,
At the foot of No-Fret hill,
There are thoroughfares delightful
In this very charming town,
And on every side are shade trees
Named the Very-Seldom-Frown.
Rustic benches, quite enticing,
You'll find scattered here and there;
And to each a vine is clinging
Called the Frequent-Emest Prayer.
Everybody there is happy.
And is singing all the while,
In the town of Don't You Worry,
On the banks of River Smile.
Beauty is instantly more than doubled-ugliness, more than halved-by
the mere act of smiling.
Figure out what will make you smile, and make that feeling true.
Life will take you everywhere, if you only allow yourself too.
Julie Hebert, The Wage of Life
Poems About Life
Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength.
Corrie ten Boom
Think about every good thing in your life right now.
Free yourself of worrying. Let go of the anxiety, breathe.
Stay positive, all is well.
Memories are aches; they are the laughter
Smiles of time flee to seize the hereafter.
More smiling, less worrying. More compassion, less judgment.
More blessed, less stressed. More love, less hate.
Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart
Quotes To Live By
Is the face that you carry a dolorous sight,
Or is there a bright smile adorning?
David V. Bush
Reacting to the world with a smile instead of a curse, a wave instead of the middle finger, will actually help you live longer.
Russell Simmons, Super Rich
Does It Really Matter
Smile. Give Earth the biggest smile you've got.
See every glimmer of light in the scariest, darkest sky.
And when people think you're crazy, then you know you've
accomplished something very few dare to try.
