Between Happiness And Me - Poem by Gregory Huyette

The only thing between happiness and me is my attitude;

Who or what’s in the driver’s seat directing my mood.

It has nothing to do with my status or measure of wealth.

It doesn’t even have to be related to the state of my health.

Whether I’m happy or sad is not changed by food or drugs;

Though I’ll admit it’s not hurt by steady supplies of hugs.

My happiness depends on whether I can draw nearer

To that image of my attention each morning in the mirror.

If I’m satisfied and confident with this familiar face,

Then happiness will be mine in life’s uncertain race.
