YOUR DESERVE TO BE HAPPY :Pursuit of happiness

In pursuit of happiness,
I wear my suit to manhattan,
I feel good to be working 
A lot of funky things I 
Just to be happy,
And not stay mean to the 
friends around me.

This smiling mindset,
Is a choice nevertheless,
Craving for the best,
A purpose we deserve,
Happiness is more than flying 
In a relaxed environment,its a 
gift from within,
That shows forth in the outer,
Like the flow of the living 
Its a thing of the heart.

It perches through the pains 
of the heart,
Bringing the fulfillment that we 
In fact you cannot be more 
than what you are,
Doesn't mean you should not 
believe what you can,
Like the verse of the holy 

On a day like this,
Every other day you breath 
from within,
Smile and be happy,
It might sound crazy,
You are passing through 
flames of fire,
A friend once called it life 
But you deserve to be happy 
friend!! all the same.

Its your right,
Its your might,
Its your gift,
Desire to be happy,
So make your slippery heart 
You will be fine when you get 
Even of it seems bleak and 
deep in distance,
Just say I will be good I know.

Light it up it is the world 
happiness day,
Play the music,
Don't confuse it,
At your workplace,
On your classroom,
At the lecture hall,
In the shopping mall,
Everywhere be happy,
We all should get on the quest 
of happiness,
Be inspired,aspire,acquire,
To be happy all the time,
Make people around you have 
a feel too,
