happiness is a decision


i have long decided
to be a happy man, and till this day
i stick to this decision,
sailing on the ship of happiness
along the sea of joy
the foams of excitement
the winds of bliss

There is no grief in this world
of responsibility
For God loves a happy man
The smile beneath
the heart that sings
the hands that wave
in celebration
The self in collaboration with
Nature in Harmony
With the happy disposition of
the Earth
