The vagaries of life
never ceasing to amaze,
sorrow one moment, joy the other
roller coaster delusional haze.
What comes our way
isn't entirely our making,
what we make of it
not to be retrograde
be joyful instead
it' time to upgrade.
Smile and laughter- the elixir of life
perpetually happy the way to be,
just be fully aware
life's meant to be a joyous affair.
