When Things Go Wrong ….

This jingle was sent to me by a young woman of 18 who was diagnosed with depression and her way of coping is to write jingles. Here is one of them:-

When things go wrong, try and smile.

When your coffee isn’t hot, wear a smile.

When your neighbors don’t do right,  

Or your relatives all fight,

Might be hard, but  – it’s worth a smile.

Doesn’t change much does it? Try and smile.

It cannot make things worse.  Try and smile.

It can always help your case

Brightens up a gloomy place

And it sort of rests your face. Try and smile.

When things go wrong as they sometimes will

When the road you’re trudging seems uphill.

When funds are low and debts are high

And you want to smile but out comes a sigh.

When care is pressing you down a bit

Rest if you must but don’t you quit.

Life is weird with its twists and turns

As each one of us sometimes learns

Don’t give up though the pace seems slow

You may succeed with another blow.

We might have won had we stuck it out.

Success is failure inside out

It’s when things seem worst, that you must not quit.
