No More Doom and Gloom

I wish to live a happy life

I don’t wish to live with doom and gloom.
I see it all the time
in the daily papers and on the news.
Yes, life is tough, and I’ve seen enough.
I now want to put on my rose-tinted glasses,
place my fingers in my ears
and sing my la-la song.
Close off my mind to the noise for a little while
while I take a mental break.
I don’t wish to hear,
I don’t want to see
