Got Happiness In My Genes



Don't know who I inherited them from Got happiness in my genes Not complaining, it's the way to fly Happy as I've ever been Try very hard with most poems I write To share these feelings of joy Some may think, “he can't be that happy He's being a little bit coy” Sure can't remember ever lying before Perhaps back in nineteen-thirty-nine Cajoling my mom into staying up late But she was quite used to my line As a kid, ya just gotta keep on trying To see what treasures you can gain My own kids kept trying over and over I was on to their little games To get back to happiness in my genes More apparent than ever before Don't know who I inherited them from But happy that's for dang sure! © Jack Ellison 2013

    Ahhhh... Jack they're not strange ramblings... they're happy dance ramblings....When you get some one to listen... you have to go for it... I'm like super dooper man... Put me behind a computer and I take off... Put my glasses on and I'm plain old Clark Kent... Didn't know I had it in me... but do enjoy the time I'm up in those clouds with you and Cathie.... We don't have happy genes... We have super dooper man genes... Bet you wondered where I was going with this... Tee Hee... LOL

    I'm so glad that you are this happy my friend! I have to say that I've been rather happy for some time now myself! Maybe I've got some of those Happy genes like you have! I enjoy life, as I believe you do, and the troubles that come I try to look at the best possible angle on all of them, and try to find the best way to fix them and make myself happy again! There's usually not much effort, for I find my way to happiness rather easily! As I know you do! This is a spectacular poem! Awesome Work!!
