HAPPINESS, OR NOT?
I woke up happy to meet the day,
Ready to face it all the way,
I’m facing forward, come what may!
But nothing rough, or I’ll run away.
We’re ready to tackle anything,
Yet pebbles can cause our mood to swing.
Being happy means smooth days along?
Anything else makes us grump and groan?
Our happiness is not based on things,
Problems should not give happiness wings
To fly off somewhere unknown to us,
Leaving us only to fume and fuss.
Don’t count on others to bring a smile,
When you frown and complain all the while.
The choice is yours, only you can make
That happiness choice, for goodness sake!
