Happy, Is What Ought To Be - Poem by Jodilee Duke

What ought to be is a happy me.
Yet l cannot seem to get that part out.
l wish l could,
therefore you would see,
that l am what you want me to be.
Happy
Happy
is what l ought to be,
cause that is what is
expect'd of me.
lf only l could fill your wishes
of who l ought to be.
Then happy you
would be,
not me.
