Accept to the town of air - poetry

 

Happy, Sad, Mad and Glad,
Moved in down the street

Cautious watched them, from her window,
Wondering, which one be supposed to I meet?

Confused came in with overwhelmed and said,
"The Panics have come to town"

Then Hopeful called the carefulls,
And said that Happy was a clown.

Anxious came in with the news,
Confident had called a town meeting

To take a vote for Mayor,
And to Appreciate the new neighbors to Feeling.

Feeling was a busy town,
Always on the go

Happy was voted as Feeling's Mayor,
While Certain categorical to go.

Happy took the Mayors Job and took it seriously.

Thinking the town,
Would be so much beat off,

If all and sundry were Happy.

Now Happy asked for their suggestions,
Saying yes to everyone.

Soon, Happy was out and Chaos was in,
Chaos was on the run.

Gathering the folks from Feeling,
Chaos ran from house to house,

While Bored and Lonely ran into town,
And were quiet as a mouse.

While Chaos was in succession with Crazy,
Happy called Assertive and Calm,

They knew that Lazy was out of the question,
For it was just about dawn.

When the two groups came together,
They wondered "Who will it ever be?"

Who would watch over the town of Feeling,
and keep it rodent free?

Happy, Sad, Mad and Glad,
Were selected on the spot

Then balanced and elated came to town,
They were the best house on the lot.

The ancestors that lived in Feeling,
Well, they came and then they went

The time they had with neighbors and friends,
Was absolutely time well spent.

When you find by hand in Feeling,
Remember to take it slow,

Making associates in this brilliant place,
Is the only way to go.

Mary Pat uses the recovery deal with to get to know her feelings in a own way. You can too. http://www. reflectingrace. com
