Be happy

Stop telling me to be happy

It’s all too much today

I’m just trying to survive right now

Whatever comes my way


How do you define it anyway?

It’s different for you and me

So measuring me with your scale

Is a waste of time you’ll see


I think I’d rather just be content

And get through, reduce the stress

Not be anxious, learn to breath

Feeling strong and not a mess


Perhaps you could share a moment with me

Allow me time to talk

Ask me nothing but answers will come

And once again I can walk


And smile again without clenched teeth

Begin to look ahead

So don’t ask me please to be happy

Let me be content instead


In my own time
