My washing machine is broken and my television too
And my tumble dryers on the brink
My phone is really ancient and I do not own a car
But I’m happier than you’d think
I need a brand new carpet 
And I've damp upon my walls
And my tap it keeps on leaking all the time
And my trainers have a hole in them
New ones I can’t afford
But I always liked the simple life so I don’t need to whine
Because I’m happy
And that’s I place I wish for you to be
I’m happy
If you could see my smile from there you’d see
I know that it might fray when trouble comes my way
But I can see the future bright
Not pains of yesterday
No more the days of running from my past
It seems that joy caught up with me at last
Because I’m happy.

    The elevator doesn't work here and I'm on the 27th floor but this poem made me think. It gladdens me a lot to enjoy this poem. It certainly diminished my depression, I dare say.

    we may not have all the worldy things we "want" if we are already contented, we are in peace and feel so love and healthy these are more than enough reasons to be happy.. :) besides God is with us more precious than gold and silver.. :) nice meassage Loise.. :) love it.. :)
