The Decision To Be Happy

Just a poem for you to reflect on and think about on happiness:)

"The Choice is Mine"

"Life may not let me choose my lot,

But whether I'd be happy or not...

That is my choice.

To leave hurtful memories behind

Or allow them to bother my mind...

The choice is mine.

To fret over a mistake when it's done

Or learn from it and move on...

The choice is mine.

To be bothered by all that people say

Or ignore them and go my own way...

The choice is mine.

To hide my feelings, pent up, unspoken,

Or say my mind and ease the burden...

The choice is mine.

To enjoy what I've been able to gain

Or ungratefully regard it with disdain...

The choice is mine.

Sometimes I won't get to pick my lot,

But whether I'll be happy or not

Will always be my choice."

-Abimbola T. Alabi
