Happiness - Poem by George Savige

You cannot buy your happiness,
'Cause happiness is free.
Don't you know, or can't you guess,
It's there for you and me.

And what you do with what you've got,
Can change the way you feel.
Just do your best and smile a lot,
You'll keep an even keel.

'Cause happiness is made for YOU,
Just take a bite and see
That happiness is what you do
With something that is free.

    Just do your best and smile a lot, Happiness is our birth right....... just be happy. i went for a laughing class. at first it was artificial laughing. finally but it became real laughter. getting out of our own destructive complexes.. makes us happy......... we are our own masters with the help of God. tony
