Happiness


My soul it is full of joy
Sometimes I feel as I will explode
I wish happiness to every man, woman, girl and boy
As I joyfully walk a different road,
Inside me there lies a mirth
Which brings me happiness and a smile
I wish that feeling to all upon this earth
As now it has become part of my new lifestyle,
Upon myself there has come a bliss
This happiness I just cannot explain
The sadness and sorrow I will not miss
As I will wash it away like the rain,
I once had walked a different path
And all I found was pain, sorrow and sadness
Potholes were filled with anger, hate and wrath
I swore and I curse I was full of madness.

Then one day I took a different trail
It was a route that I never took before
To me a new life did prevail
Where I went, I needed and wanted to explore,
It took me away from all of my sins
And it led me away from guilt and lies
When hating ends, good then begins
Happiness and peace was my prize,
Now I always feel an uncontrollable elation
Wherever I am or wherever I might be
Happiness has become my jubilation
And now the sadness it has turned into glee,
If my face and soul an artist could capture
Then all would know how I do feel
Upon my soul and being there is a rapture
I am so happy; I just can't stand still.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
