The Frown Syndrome People

Frown Syndrome people are nothing new,
I think they've been here before me or you,
Around and around on the merry-go-round,
They frown if they're white, and they frown if they're brown.

 

They frown in the city, and frown in the town,

When asked to stop frowning,
They will frown at you and say,
"I'll have to stand on my head,
Because this frown won't go away."

 

They will frown in the morning, and they'll frown in the night,
They will frown in the darkness, and frown in the light,
Those Frown Syndrome people, can become quite a sight!
I'm beginning to think that it just is not right!

 

We might smile, and greet them, with gracious 'hellos',
We might bring them some presents in boxes and bows,
We might paint them a smile with pretty pink crayons,
But no matter how pretty, smiles just never stay on!

 

The doctor is eager to give them a pill,
But the frowning comes back when he sends them the bill,
Some say that a hug could help brighten their day,
But the Frown Syndrome people don't like hugs, they say.

 

I think variations in people will be,
Underneath every syndrome we'll find,
If we look with our hearts beauty's easy to see,
What we miss when just using our mind.

nightlight...i love this piece. it's hard to always smile, but people are people no matter what color they are, how they're feeling, and were all crafted by God. it can be heart-warming to see someone smile, but sometimes depending what you're telling them a smile isn't exactly the right reaction, but a hug goes a long way. beautiful.

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "

YesYpres, some find it easier

YesYpres, some find it easier to frown but there's never any harm in trying to turn themupside-down! ;) frowners can be downers and real hard to be around but distract them with fun and they eventually turn around, it's the worriers you know that help keep us safe and sound!

Don't let any one shake your dream stars from your eyes, lest your soul Come away with them! -SS

Cool I prefer the upside down version, but wise, cold, young, old, bold or moldy - sometimes yes, frowns have articulation rights ~~A~~
