Life Lesson - Poem by Robert Beksinski

What is the meaning of true happiness?
I don’t think the world has a clue.
Everyday we witness tragedy and sadness.
Only happy will remain in the few.

The people who could laugh the devil in his face,
The ones who wake up without a worry,
And take advantage of the earth’s beauty and grace,
And make sure they are not living in a hurry.

It’s about your attitude and the way you view your life,
That will make the difference in how it will all turn out.
Disregard all the hate and avoid any strife.
Find your happiness and enjoy yourself without doubt.

We were placed on this earth for a cause,
And until we have the knowledge of it,
Forget regret and embrace your flaws,
And love everyday until the candle is no longer lit.
