For the Rhythm and Rhyme Contest, a Rondel
Prompt #2 for R&R
Don't brood over the past and things before.
Just like a quick river let your life flow.
With sheer happiness make your face aglow.
Be glad with what you have, don't ask for more.

Think of bright days to come and don't feel sore.
Life is a cycle of mirth and sorrow.
Don't brood over the past and things before.
Just like a quick river let your life flow.

Stop musing on the gloomy days of yore.
Life has both joy and sadness to bestow,
Take life as it comes and upsets, although
Remember that sunny days are in store.
Don't brood over the past and things before.
