It’s Easy

It’s easy to be nice
Just offer up a smile
It’s easy to make friends
Just listen for awhile

It’s easy to share
Just let yourself give
It’s easy to care
Just open up your heart

It’s easy to have fun
Just learn how to dance
It’s easy to have love
Just give it a chance

It’s easy to live
Just open your eyes
It’s easy to forgive
Just let the past go

Who was it that said
These things were so hard?
You're not yet dead
Just drop your guard


  1. love it! kinda like a cheer.
    not dead yet!
    drop your guard!
    sis boom bah!

  2. That's right! I'm definitely a cheerleader for living life to the fullest.

    (I may not look so hot in a skirt, but I can really shake my pom-poms!)

  3. Dropping the guard...yes we all must do that or we will waste our life fighting ghosts....thank you for the correction on "too"....I have the hardest time with that of those rules that never made got fully imprinted....bkm
