Happy Is Being Elsewhere - Poem by Erica Francis

A chinese lady once told me
'Happy is being elsewhere'

I couldn't figure out
if she meant
that somewhere else is happier

or if she spoke
and meant
that she wasn't happy
with her current situation.

Either way,
Happy is being elsewhere.

    Sometimes it is, sometimes not, depends on where you are at any one time. And who you're with. Still, this one did make me think......Nice one, Erica.

    Love, Fran xx
