I Am Happy

I Am Happy

As I sat in my balcony

To unravel life’s irony

A sensuous feeling, my blood burned

Coursing to my heart, it warmed

Then I felt a glow on my face

My lips parted in a smile


Why am I happy? I asked

The economy is smoked

Natural disasters everywhere

No excitement left anywhere

Hunger and strife have become the clime

Poverty and crime escalated to a prime


Then I remember

Even in stormy weather

There’s still hope somewhere

Even in a journey to nowhere

We stay strong as one

Like a bundle never to be torn


Looking at each other face

Catching somebody’s gaze

That gleeful smile

With rapport and gale

Then I realized why I’m happy

Because I chose to be happy
