So many problems, so many snags
To untangle every day;
So many perplexing things in life
That keep us from being gay!
So many days that are drab and dull
That we're filled with deepest woe,
And we give way to discouragement,
Our dangerous, mortal foe.—
A foe to our joy and happiness,
A foe to our peace of mind,—
It's something we all have to conquer
If contentment we would find!
~Gertrude Tooley Buckingham, "Our Mortal Foe" (1940s)
