The world we see is much what we expect,
Presenting images our minds project,
For if you own a cheerful temperament
And stroll about secure and confident,
The world responds and generally reflects
That attitude your shaping soul elects:
Then cheer prevails in your elate purview,
But quite the opposite for those who stew:
A fearful or a doleful attitude
Creates reciprocally a worldly mood
(Or so it seems) of sadness and despair,
A surplus of neglect and dearth of care.
The choice is ours. Our world is in our hands.
Reality responds to our commands.
