Mr. Sunshine: Was today so bad?
Gloomy: It was terrible!
Mr. Sunshine: Well, the day’s almost over.
Gloomy: What do you mean?
Mr. Sunshine: When you wake up in the morning, it will be a new day, and you will get to do it all over again.
Gloomy: That doesn’t guarantee, that I’m going to feel any better?
Mr. Sunshine: Well, that’s a chance, I’m willing to take!

I don’t know if my poetry is good enough, or if anybody will be motivated to do better, by having known me. But that’s as good as I can make it, right now.

The father asked his boy: “son, what will it take to make you happy?” And he replied: “I really don’t know anymore, you see once you open the flood gates, it doesn’t stop until it all runs out!” And as a poet, I could relate, because the poems don’t stop coming. I just wish they were happy ones, instead of sad songs about you. By: ElRoy 2019
When you are hollow in the inside, any external pressure will cause your soul to cave in. But, If you have substance in the inside, you will be able to withstand the pressures of life. So do you chase after shallow interests, that leave you exhausted but unfulfilled, or do you seek to find a meaningful purpose for your existence? By: ElRoy 2019
