TITLE: My Humorous Sense

Itís one of those days when life is funny,
Warm and fuzzy like the Easter Bunny,
I find myself laughing at the silliest things,
So hard my sides are splitting it seems.

I love these times when Iím feeling good,
Giggling, grinning, and misunderstood,
People look as if Iíve gone quite mad,
When I smile in the face of attempts gone bad.

I canít help myself but to laugh you see,
All things work together for the good of me,
I canít see the cloud for the silver lining,
Beyond dark skies the sun is shining.

I once was something of a gloomy Gus,
Depressed with life and making a fuss,
But Iíve learned to laugh at lifeís little woes,
That once frustrated me down to my toes.

I had an eventful time yesterday,
Seemed like every pitfall came my way,
Best laid plans all going wrong,
So I sang myself a funny song.

One might ask how I can be cheery,
Why circumstances donít make me weary,
Itís just that I found my humorous sense,
Once Jesus Christ became my friend.

This is a fun and light-hearted poem but has a beautiful message in it. It is true that we set the tone of our lives and how we approach them can make such a difference. Though a couple of your rhymes didn't exactly rhyme the message came through loud and clear and it didn't really matter if every line rhymed. You definitely were on topic and did a nice job with this piece.

What a refreshing contrast to the popular myth that deeper spirituality can only be measured by deeper frown lines. Loved it; well done.

I always LOVE your positive outlook on life. You truly are an inspiration and this poem is an absolute tribute to not only your sense of humor, but how you view life. Excellent rhythm in this poem although there are a couple of places where there isn't a true rhyme, but outside that, this was a wonderful entry and so very on topic. Excellent writing!

I enjoyed your peem and your view on life. Poems do not always have to rhyme to make them good poetry. The message was clear and the flow was smooth.

I smiled all the way through-you inspire me lovely spirit!

Life understood and flavored with a sense of humor is a blessing. Your poem makes this clear and that it was written from the heart with conviction, experience and insight makes it all the more believable.
