Happy Poem (poem)

Updated on November 20, 2015
Source

What could be better then just to feel happy

and smile all day long!

To your dog, to the tree, to the peppermint patty...

Just walk around and sing a song!


Wouldn't that be great not to think

about things that mess with your head?

Forget about it, and do your own thing,

and kick your troubles to the curb!


I would be home, and write, and write,

and then even write some more!

And later I would go out for a bite,

and feed a deer with an apple core!


And what do you do, when you feel so content,

without a care in the world?

Do you play with your cat, sleep out in the tent

or read some written word?


Happiness isn't what people may think,

it's nothing that money can provide...

It is doing your daily, regular things

with a warm feeling inside!


Source

It is petting your dog, kissing your cats,

testing new aromas and flavors...

It is knitting a bunch of cozy hats

and giving them to your neighbors...


Just like what you do, and do what you like...

Be good to others, paint, dance or bake!

Do not expect rewards in your life,

give more, than you could take!



Have a great day!!!

      I can say Ditto, Ditto, Ditto. . . . - It's so wonderful to be happy. And in a way, it's a choice. One thing, though. We can't achieve it by stuffing real feelings if they are the 'other' feelings. All feelings have great value. What we can do is release the less happy feelings once we've felt them and they have finished their natural course, which isn't perpetual!

      Congratulations on a lovely hub!! I feel happy just reading it!

      Dear ct92, thank you for your thoughtful comment! I noticed most people write about pain and saddness, and I wanted to do it differently. It actually put me in a good mood, when I was writing it, and it does the same every time I read it :-)

      Great poem! It is very unusual, and i really enjoyed the simplicity of it. Sometimes poems can get long and dark, and often filled with a lot of abnormal words and synonyms. There is nothing wrong with that, but it was really nice to read something else!

      I really liked the message you are sending with this poem, thumbs up to you!

      Dear cat on a soapbox, I love hearing from you! I am so glad you enjoyed my modest poem. Let's try to be content with what our lives bring us everyday! We are lucky to be here!

      What a sweet and uplifting piece of poetry! A change in outlook while doing the simple things each day is all it takes. So many wait for some momentous event to make them happy- meanwhile life just passes by. We are so blessed but often can't see it. Thank you for sharing! My best to you-

      Cat :)

      Thanks you rajan jolly! I wish we could remember that, instead of getting tangled up in a daily rat race!

      You are so right. It's not money that makes one happy. It is the feeling of being content inside that lifts the mood and keeps it going. Great poem.

      I agree! Although we can't feel happy all the time, we could try to look at our lives from a perspective, and try to find something to feel content about...Thanks for your comment!

      I'm glad to see you finally on the bright side! I think this feeling is much better than to feel depressed all the time. People choose how they want to feel, they choose whether they will get up with a frown or a smile. People choose to feel sad so they can get empathy from others, but are forgetting what joy it is to feel happy!

      Wow.....you have a different voice from a lot of poets. It definitely sticks out in a good way! ;) Not many poets take the chances to write about being happy! I read a lot of stuff that usually give me chills, this one gave me WARMTH INSIDE! I feel like randomly skipping through a field!!!!2
