I Wish I Would Be Happy Each And Every Day - Poem by chad fisher

I wish I would understand how to hold happiness firmly in my palm,
I wish I would take every moment, every day to just be still and calm
I wish that my smile wouldn't sometimes have to be something to pursue,
But I wish that happiness when it came was something I could never undo

Here are my words of advice, though I am sure many will never obey,
When happiness comes don't dropp it, don't let it slip away,
Keep it in your grasp for as long as you can possibly bear,
It can be fleeting, and once its gone in another place, its hard to find out where.

Don't let it slip, don't let it die, only trust and believe
In impossible things that are hopeful, even things you may never achieve
Pretend, have fun, and live a life that builds you up, rather than in dismay,
For I wish I would take every moment to just be happy each and every day!

    p.s. I know that dropp is spelled with only one p, but sometimes when I write it on here it gets double, if only I could dropp the second p. just for fun lets see, drip dropp drip drop, don't drop, to the hip hop, dropp me down, don't dropp the dripping dip, dip down to the ground, dropp down low.

    By the way, this grammatical error is not my own, everytime I only entered one p. Techincal error.
