What makes dance for joy and make you do an inner smile,
What takes you off your feet and suspends your fears for a while?
Is it the money in your pocket so you can buy things that bling?
Or maybe take a vacation to an exotic place for a two-week fling.
Is it the smile of your kids when they succeed in a classroom?
Or when they grow up and walk down the aisle bride or groom.
Is it the grandchildren with smiles with no teeth?
Is it patriotism when you see air planes fly above or a naval fleet
Do you laugh inside when you pay off a long-standing bill?
Is reading a book, seeing a movie or singing in the shower give you a thrill?
Then you must shut off the news and make it go away,
For anxiety lies within the broadcasts night or day.
