                             The Pill...

There is a greatĖgreat sickness that is spreading throughout the land.
       It is powerful and devastating and brings with it a crippling hand.
It is tormenting thousands who cry, "Oh, ...wonít someone help me?
       Is there anyone thatís listening? Will someone respond to my plea?"
Laden with suffering, their heavy hearts are bearing untold pain.
       This illness changing their life, for they were never one to complain.
"Donít others see my suffering? Must it be as obvious as a plague?
       Must I constantly explain it to them? For mere empathy must I beg?"

"Says he, "Yes, I see your problems, theyíre not your fault, I understand.
       Your life is full of injustice and cruelty, youíve been dealt a bad hand!
Youíre hurt because others are unaware of your needs and frailties!
       They offer advice and opinions that do little but increase your miseries!
Theyíre quick to ask for your help but your worth, they undervalue!
       When will they understand that their mistreatment cannot continue?
The reason why others are not seeing what you are going through,
       is because deep inside them, they really donít care about you."

Donít listen to him. He wants you to be discouraged. That is the honest truth.
       But you can easily be happy if you want, Iíll show you the honest proof.
Facts have little to do with happiness, because itís a decision of the will.
       You can be happy or sad if you want, you were born with an attitude pill.
Look at people who live in miserable conditions, yet are happy and glad.
       Now look at those having bountiful circumstances but are unhappy and sad.
So always be careful who you listen to and avoid those who pull you down.
       Some have nothing better to do than make others miserable and frown.

Also be careful of the shows you watch and of the books you choose to read.
       A lot of them are really negative and contain things you donít want or need.
The biggest safety net you have is controlling the things you think about.
       Avoid self-pity and counting problems, they just create worry and doubt.
You really can change your outlook by just taking your God given attitude pill.
       You can be happy or sad if you choose to be, itís a decision of your will.
Finally, believe God wonít allow more than you can handle, ...because itís true.
       The problems we have are to help us grow and He will help ...if you ask Him to.

   "For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he." Proverbs 23:7

                              "Expect your every need to be met.
                                           Expect the answer to every problem.
                                                       Expect abundance in every level."
                                                                        Eileen Caddy
