Bring on

The challenges of the day,

But we'll face them with laughs

And widened smiles.

 

Embarrassed giggles

And mischievous snickers

Follow the minutes of the day,

Happiness is obligatory

 

And sorrow is forbidden,

If only for a day.

When life tears, rips, screams and yells

At your heartstrings

 

And pounds you to the ground,

You smile and get back to your feet,

And one-two, Life's on the ground!

Dance and rejoice,

 

Until the shadows come to life.

We'll dance with the demons

And sing with the sirens,

To sunrise and beyond.

 

Joy is instinctive

And laughter is automatic,

Ballads and songs

Terpsichore in the air like dust;

 

Take these hands and twirl

Along with me,

For we're happy to be alive:

Bring the challenges of the day!

I'm breaking constantly, continuously and always, it's just that nobody sees it - but I'm fine with that, as long as there's something to fix me, too. ~ Me

Because this song never fails to bring a smile to my face :D

I think I'll dedicate this to @Forgewright, because I think it'd suit him. Any objections?

Sounds awesome! I just discovered them recently with their song 'radioactive' and I'm still in the middle of discovering what other songs they have. But I just love that song because it's so upbeat and enthusiastic like, 'Yeah! Let's face the world and we know we're going to have a laugh and win!'

Hope she'll have fun!

Thanks Kiddo. Been a bit discouraged of late. You have brought a smile to my heart. Work has me spinning around. Each day seems to build more discontent. My strength has been failing me this last week and it is tough to get though the grueling factory job.

Your thought of me brought me up again. Although my diabetes is trying to drag me down, you've given me a better mental picture which is half the battle.

I owe you one.

I am a man with one distinguishing manner. I view life as a nonstop roll by circus. Whatever my senses signal to my brain, it is received as humor.
