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. 
Fixate upon 
living in a dreamy chateau. 

Mind over matter
works almost everytime.
Wear your strongest armor
so you'll perpetually climb.
