Happiness is when you open your eyes for the first time
and see the world in color,
happiness is when you take your first step in life,
happiness is when you have someone to tell you love them,
happiness is when you realize
that small things can be big,
and big things can be small,
happiness is when you have dreams,
happiness is when you can cry,
and misery is when you can't,
you are lucky when you cry for someone
just as you do for yourself,
happiness is when you have compassion,
and misery when you don't.
When you are sad, bitter, hungry, misunderstood, disliked, abandoned,
do not be unhappy…
do not be unhappy,
my dear friend.
