Feeling sorry doesn’t help to win
friends or even happiness in spades.
On the other hand it is no sin
when the satisfaction with yourself once fades.
But you mustn’t give in to depression
nor stay in the valley of bad mood –
not to just make any good impression,
but for you – to stop yourself to brood.
See the sun in places where you are
and the shortfalls as the minor cases.
And whenever you do still feel under par
look more closely at your fellows’ faces.
