and yes, you know it...

"the truest wisdom lies in a happy mind." -ella wheeler wilcox

it happens to you…
quickly, in a snap

your face lights up…
waking up..
from a really long nap…

you’re tickled by a thought
it makes you smile
all the battles you fought…
they’re gone for a while

there’s a warmth in your chest…
you giggle for a bit…
you settle for your best
and everything seems to fit

your life is far from perfect
but it’s perfectly fine
you learn to redirect
and you read the right signs

you take it with a grain of salt
things could be really worse
not everything’s your fault
and your life, definitely, not a curse

without warning, without a clue
it hits you when you least expect it
when all this time you were sorry and blue…
it’s your turn to redeem and collect it

ah yes, it can happen, even to you,
a misfit
finally…you’re actually happy
and yes,
you know it
