As we go through our lives

We come across them,

Come across problems,

But each of them can be solved.

If it is a problem

That does not affect you,

Accept it.

If it is a problem

That can be changed,

Change it.

If it is a problem

That cannot be changed,

Leave it,

Leave it and move on,

Move on in your life.

  • Comment from author about the poem: What problems? The music is Mozart's 'A Musical Joke' it is intentionally a bad piece of music and those who know about music will realise how bad it is but it is brilliant in the way it was written. I would expect nothing else but brilliance from Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

    A fine write and clip Gold. Erm yes. Some try to deal with it, if there's no problem there, as in 'If it ain't broke, don't fix it'. We put our hand in (or our oar in) and then we may break it! Doh!

    That was brilliant


    Thanks ANDY ~ All I would say is a BAD MOZART composition is still better than most other COMPOSERS GOOD compositions I enjoyed listening to it but I did get the JOKE in the end Loved your POEM ! Men are great "FIXERS" often with Dire Consequences ! Most ladies I know ignore them and they go away. We had a Chief Technician called MAC (Irish) who was called MISTER FIXIT ! 5 times out of 4 he did and order was restored ~ BUT the fifth time he almost destroyed the College ~ Like TRUMP he believed Health & Safety was a CHINESE MYTH ! Thanks for your sound WISDOM ~ Please check my Poem and a Bonus from FRANK IFIELD ~ I Remember YOU ! Yours BRIAN

    I enjoyed Mozart’s musical joke! Clever indeed!

    Your poem offers a great message! If we all followed it, imagine what a wonderful life we would enjoy! However, I’ll be the first to admit that it’s not an easy task!

    Good advice and good choice for the music.
