Grasping the total situation
I come to a conclusion.
If you give up on true happiness
you'll be confined to seclusion.
Every time you hit a bump
along your chosen road
Replace your disappointment
and put your gears in happy mode.
Take a moment to pause your brain
and look up at the big blue sky.
Release all your stress
maybe purge with a good strong cry.
Imagine floating high above
the green grass below.
living in a dreamy chateau.
Mind over matter
works almost everytime.
Wear your strongest armor
so you'll perpetually climb.
