Happiness

Think a happy thought
A sweet memory or a hopeless dream
Then sprinkle a little fairy dust
And see how you fly, wild and free

Let the hateful beings come
And drain the warmth around you
Let them bring their bitter cold
They can't touch the fire inside you

Now think another happy thought
And dazzle the world about you
Then see how the foul thoughts flee
And beauty again surrounds you

Such is the magic professed in joy
But joy, in itself, is magic
It lies within you, waiting to be unleashed
All you need to know is the trick.


Disclaimer: Inspired by the works of J. M. Barrie and J. K. Rowling. I am ever grateful to them and all other authors out there who have brought so much happiness and enchantment into our lives.

Teachers

Knowledge
The greatest gift of all
So nobly shared
So carelessly ignored

Because we're too cool
For an education
Who needs it?
We know it all

And so we disregard
Those who opened our eyes
Taught us to see more than ever before
To think and to question why
