This jingle was sent to me by a young woman of 18 who was diagnosed with depression and her way of coping is to write jingles. Here is one of them:-
When things go wrong, try and smile.
When your coffee isn’t hot, wear a smile.
When your neighbors don’t do right,
Or your relatives all fight,
Might be hard, but – it’s worth a smile.
Doesn’t change much does it? Try and smile.
It cannot make things worse. Try and smile.
It can always help your case
Brightens up a gloomy place
And it sort of rests your face. Try and smile.
When things go wrong as they sometimes will
When the road you’re trudging seems uphill.
When funds are low and debts are high
And you want to smile but out comes a sigh.
When care is pressing you down a bit
Rest if you must but don’t you quit.
Life is weird with its twists and turns
As each one of us sometimes learns
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow
You may succeed with another blow.
We might have won had we stuck it out.
Success is failure inside out
It’s when things seem worst, that you must not quit.
