Do you love to hear sweet songs?
Go outside and listen for
All kinds of birds chirping.
Go to your local park
Sit on a swing and look around
See that you’re free
There are no wars or fights going on.
Look and see that you’re safe from evil.
The snow is melting
Time is ticking
Why don’t you go outside
Turn the hose on
Play with your neighbors
Say to yourself that you
Are very lucky. Don’t worry
About people who brag.
Just think to yourself that
You are truly one of the luckiest
People in the whole world.
