Nastiness v Happiness!!!

Updated on November 16, 2012
Nastiness v Happiness.
Nastiness v Happiness. | Source

Nastiness scowls come what may...................

Happiness plays brightly each day.................


Happiness so awesome

Oh yes full of beauty.............

Nastiness oh so mean

And yes oh so ugly................


One day Nastiness said

"I'll make you disappear........"

Happiness simply smiled

Her faith so very clear..................



Nastiness growled thunder

And slithers of lightening..............

While Happiness just shone

The whole world brightening................



Nastiness cried great floods

So trying his hardest................

Happiness shone brighter

It was not a contest..........



Nastiness blew rough gales

So very ferocious...........................

But Happiness smiled on

Her smile so luscious.........



Nastiness always scowled

In his mean spiteful way...............

Happiness warmed the world

Shining on each new day........................



Nastiness is weakening

As always a loser...................

Happiness so joyous

The world never prettier....................



Her smile simply glowing

As Nastiness melted...........

Happiness won her day

The world as she wanted.......



The moral of this is

To treat others kindly.................

Nasty ways never win

Be gentle and happy!!!!!!


Happiness wins.
Happiness wins. | Source

I hope you all enjoyed today's hub and here's to a great weekend for you all.

      Good morning Eddy. I couldn't agree more about you moral here of treating others kindly. My mother taught me as a child to treat others the way you would want to be treated and I try so hard to do just that. So your poem really spoke to me on that level. Of course I voted up and shared all over as always!!

      Even before I read the end of this poem I was rooting for Happiness. She seems like such a lovely person! And I think I would enjoy her smile very much!

      Well said. Allowing happiness in turns each day into the vibrant colors as seen in the pictures at the end of the poem. A smile can even make Mr. Nasty change his attitude. Truly happy people exude the joy and it becomes contagious.

      So glad I stopped by today, Eddy, to see what was happening here. I am never disappointed. Sending Angels your way...:) ps

      Lovely poem. I don't know why, but it reminded me of 'There was a little girl Who had a little curl..' I hope you have a great weekend, too.

      Your sure right Eddy we must treat all the same no matter race , colour, or hair etc. Yet in certain instances we may have to take a stand if it differs from God's word. For GOD loves all of us and so he expects the same for us to be kind, caring and sharing to each other.

      Nastiness has taken over some but Happiness shall always prevail

      Interesting that you write nastiness as a man and happiness as a woman...

      I do love the back and forth style where happiness rules...

      Eddy - This is a beautiful combination of symbolism and beauty, especially when reflected against the dark emotion and thunder associated with being so nasty. I envisioned Snow White versus The Mean Witch with the poisoned apple.

      You are so right with your philosophy Eddy. The world has been undermined by evil forces and by nature we all are prone to accept negativeness as a fact, unless we are really touched by beautiful souls or angels that pass us by. "Nasty ways never win,," and that is the best moral for all of us. Thanks my friend!

      Shauna L Bowling 4 years ago from Central Florida

      As my mother says, 'pretty is as pretty does'. The same goes for ugliness. I believe beauty and kindness of spirit overcomes when met with negativity. Negativity is only a force when it lacks a positive counterpart. That's not me and hopefully it's not anyone reading this awesome poem! Only the strong survive and I'm not done yet! Neither are you, Eddy; you've only just begun.....
