Choosing happiness 

Is supposed to feel good.

It’s supposed to be freeing,

And invite further happiness into your life.


Instead it hurts.

Choosing happiness means

Letting go of something that 

You thought

Made you happy.

It’s letting go of something


Something that is close to 

Your heart.

But it hurts instead.

It brings a dry, empty feeling

Because letting go


Letting go is something that nobody wants to do.

But it must happen

Because everything doesn’t last forever

And so does happiness.

It’s not forever,

So you must enjoy it while it lasts.
