Kids are experts on happiness. Ask any one
What it means to feel wonderful. They will tell you
Eagerly what it is that excites and delights.
They have no difficulty with keeping their sights
On the path least resistive with fun things to do.
If we listened more to them we might learn a ton.
Happiness matters hugely to the one who cares
Quite a lot about living completely freely.
No Matter What is going on wherever they
Happen to be by nature they’re guided to play.
They never need to fake it. The glow that you see
Is for real and it is intrinsically theirs.
They do not have split energy like most adults
Who have gotten too used to the earth’s gravity.
The need to be uplifted among us is high.
It would be wonderful if people wondered why
It is that children most often seem completely
Immune to life’s most grave and demeaning insults.
The moment we get crossways of replenishment
Of life energy flowing through us we become
Disenchanted and languid regarding our dreams
But the heart that is pure and open and that beams
Is the place where good and wholesome living starts from.
The world is open to us when we are content.
