Radiating positive rays of hope
Rays of hope, from within shining
Enchanting beams, ever enticing
Charming us with attractive ease
With beaming promises to please
With their assurance, draw us near
With lively light, none to fear.
Being positive always brings people closer to you.
Beaming rays from in us shine
That withstand any test of time
The light from in us can radiate
If we choose to beam, illuminate
Be always kept in the know
Of how to emit this vibrant glow
Keep yourself in the know about being positive - take classes if you need to!
Don't worry Be Happy Bobby McFerrin
The beaming rays should remain pure
Darkness creeps in with stealth, to ignore
Calm the mind, ever engaged
Tend the heart, ever enraged
Calm the spirit, put soul at ease
Seek out everlasting peace
Calm yourself down everyday through prayer and meditation. Cleanse the spirit.
With healthy habit, we channel light
Reading words that affirm, lines of might
Reminding ourselves not to stray
From positive thoughts every day
Share a few hugs, read a comforting book
Say a few kind words, sit by a brook
Have healthy routine habits. like reading, or simply making the point to read words of affirmation to yourself.
Avoid the souls which cloud one’s light
For they make the day less bright
Surround oneself with brave, strong hearts
From selves that moan, be quick to part.
Remind, if yourself be the soul that depresses
Never to be darkness that represses
Surround yourself with positive folks!
Allow oneself to be the beam
Hopefulness that mends broken dreams
The little spark that lights the fire
When the day seems most dire
Be the glow that lights the way
That brings relief to someone’s day
Allow yourself to be the spark that lights the fire, to shine for others and to enjoy the moment.
Rays of hope, glowing from within
Powerful light, though it be small
Radiate from in us all.
