Dive into Paradise

I am about to retire for the day;
I worked so hard;
But I did not get the results
That I expected;
They were far below my dreams, indeed;
Do you think I was sad or happy?
Of course, you know it’s hard
To be happy when things go
The opposite way;
But if you know my New Year resolution,
You will understand;
I took a decision to be happy;
To turn my stumbling blocks
Into stepping stones;
And so I wrote this poem;
Had my day been great,
I would never have written this.
Let’s see how far it goes.
Whenever you are hard hit
By the blows of life,
Do something positive;
Step on those stumbling-blocks
And dive into Paradise.
