I wake up with a smile in place
And carry on that way,
Thanks to the fact the light of Grace
Shines down on me each day.

It isn’t that I fail to see
The mess the planet’s in,
But everything’s as it should be –
The way it’s always been.

It’s taken me a chunk of years
To recognise this truth.
That would have saved the many tears
I cried since troubled youth.

I banged my head against the wall
Until it chanced to crack and fall.
