Energy shakes my soul,
laughter makes me blind.
Joy lights my heart,
ecstasy grips my mind.

Sadness greets my heart,
sorrow invades my head.
Too much effort to cry,
so I chuckle instead.

Some say I'm weird,
others vote for strange.
But life is much too short,
for me to try to change.

I'll roam the world,
and saunter through life.
Counting my blessings,
and forgetting my strife.

Yesterday is ash, tomorrow is smoke; only today does the fire burn.

JP: And even when you can't completely forget your strife, a little bit of blessing counting makes it easier to bear.... great job!

Yep, I like this and agree.  Life is too short not to smile and it is too short to worry if others think we are odd.  Beside, I KNOW I am.
