font color=darkvioletKey to Happiness

I discovered the key to happiness.
For a day I held this knowledge
and I put it to good use,
enjoying a summer day,
even in my mother’s presence.
But as the sun set,
my happiness went with it.

I still have the knowledge,
though for some reason,
I’m thinking age,
I’m unable to follow it.
I will share it with you,
though please heed these words,
this knowledge is much more potent
when discovered on your own,
and in hearing it from me
you could lose your chance of ever using it.

The key to happiness,
the key to my happiness
is this:
“No matter where you are,
or who you’re with,
it is always your say
whether you’re happy or not.
Sure, in some cases it’s easy,
while others test your strength.
But no matter what,
you make the choice to be happy.”

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
