"When nothing goes right, go left"

I had times of uneasiness,
times when I didn't know what to do.
In the past are they.
Still in my head lurks the memories that pass through.
I laugh at my tears, dried on the pillow they lay.

Not all times were tears,
i think to myself.
What was different then?
Joyous and triumphant memories on my shelf.
still tears drop for what has been.

The author's comments:
Before writing this I was thinking about how one day I'll be laughing my head off, the the next I'll be crying alone in my room. I just want people to understand from this poem that everyone should not take for granted the good times, because it's the good times that get you through the bad.
