Why are things so hard?
Why is it so hard to be happy sometimes?
Why is it so hard to maintain a light spirit?
Why is it so hard to keep a constant smile?

I feel like my Happiness has been ripped from me.

Sometimes I wake up so angry
and it takes so much effort to to let that go.
I hate that feeling.
It's such an ugly feeling,
so black and deep.

But it's so tiring to constantly look about you
to find something, anything that will lighten the mood,
that will lighten your heart.

I'm so tired.

But what can you do, right?

You have to keep trying to smile.
You can't let the darkness overcome you.
You have to keep waking up in the morning.

And you have to find a new Happiness.

So sorry friend. For what it's worth, I think you've done a remarkable job of "trying" and keeping on. But I also think it's OK to just BE mad or feel sad sometimes too.

You're amazing!
