Selfishness, pride, envy, greed… all of these can be
Considered to be terrible sins, but there’s no
Greater sin than not being happy. Life is too
Short to tiptoe through it while always feeling blue,
Suffering and complaining with nowhere to go
But deeper into conflict, fear, and misery.
Some may think that happiness is overrated.
Others say that it’s impossible to achieve.
Still others say that we created the concept
Which is why your impressions of it must be kept
Free of bias. In short, you must truly believe
In the happiness you’ve already created.
“Someday, somewhere – anywhere, unfailingly, you’ll
Find yourself, and that, and only that can be the
Happiest or the bitterest hour of your life.”
Who the hell wants to live their life in constant strife
When there’s every good reason to live happily?
We’re not put on the planet to act the damned fool.
Make the best use of your time. Care for your body.
It’s the temple of the Holy Spirit and it
Deserves your respect and affection. Be aware
Of the simple pleasures and find happiness there.
Breaking certain rules can be to your benefit
If with your inner guidance they do not agree.
