HAPPINESS that elusive, shining gold,
IS not imagined. It has come my way,
AN amazing blessing, never bought or sold,
ATTITUDE adjustment takes expressway.
OF specific location independent,
MIND over matter, why should we fret so.
BORN to be joyful, reasoning transcendent,
OF glass-walled dwellings with no stone to throw.
THE circumstances neither prove restraint.
SIMPLE influence of faith makes one content.
DETERMINATION urges no complaint.
TO self-pity we cannot give consent.
BE the one to generate that attitude,
HAPPY, with a heart replete in gratitude.
