Grinning In Gratitude

Feeling joy drives some folks mad:
Those who think their suffering
Saves them from being bad.
Don't they know that The Creator
Made us to be glad?

Some people think that being nasty
To all those around them
Makes them mature or classy.
When I'm around them,
I feel quite trashy.

Joy is our show of gratitude;
All it requires is change
In our overall attitude.
It's a way of looking at life,
Not a function of mood.


  1. There are some good 'life's facts', in those three verses, And JOY is a way of looking at life!!!!!

    Have a great weekend and stay warm!!!!

  2. I like this poem much better than your last one. Yes, God meant for us to be happy. I believe He takes delight in those who have an attitude of gratitude and who seize the day!
