Anything To Be Happy


What would you do for a touch of happiness

Would you run that extra distance
Would you spend that extra hour
Would you show that extra effort

What would you do for a touch of happiness

Would you feel that extra pain
Would you spend that extra cash
Would you drive that extra mile

What would you do for a touch of happiness

People would do anything to be happy
It is something they need
They do the “extras”
When it is all quite simple
Happiness comes from the inside

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
