Happiness, Fate, Work And Fear - Poem by Kelly Kurt
If happiness is all I need
Then I’ll let laughter be my creed
Smiles are all I want from life
I want no hate, no worry or strife
My neighbors I will fill with cheer
And keep them happy throughout the year
For who can smile while fighting back a tear?
If fate is my one driving force
Then destiny is mine of course
I’ll need not fight or work or strive
I certainly will still alive
‘Til what I am to do is done
But ‘til that time I’ll have no fun
For who can cheer when the battle’s not yet won?
If work is what’s to get me through
Then work and work is what I’ll do
I’ll sweat and strain to reach each goal
And not let failures take their toll
Success is all I will strive for
So when I’m done, I’ll work some more
For who can rest when it’s work they adore?
If fear should dominate my days
I won’t be free to go my ways
To seek a life I want to live
Or give the love I want to give
I’ll live a life of constant threat
And not feel safe to take a breath
For who can breathe when he’s scared to death?
If life is all these things my dear
Like happiness. Fate work and fear
Then who’s to say which path you’ll choose
Or if you’ll win, or if you’ll lose
Or if the path you choose is one
Of the best beneath the sun
For who but you knows this, my son?
