I Choose - Poem by Elle Barr

I can laugh all I want
And pretend it’s okay,
But the pain inside me,
Won’t just go away.

I can smile everyday,
And act as if it’s alright,
But the tears every night,
Makes me wish for the light.

I can sing a happy song,
And can do it for long,
But after I get tired,
It’s the sad songs I like.

Just enough!
I choose to be happy,
And I’m gonna do it today.

    You've made the right choice!
    Sometimes you have to put your foot down
    and look for happiness.
