Let Happy Out

After hard work and much graft
To be pleased with something is so…
So middle of the road and boring
Is there a reason not to be
Ecstatic, overjoyed or thrilled?
Why do we feel need to temper
Excitement and self-approval?
Arrogance and pomposity
Words bandied about by others
Fear of their scorn the brake pads
To sheer wonder waiting to get out
Leave them be with judgemental mediocrity
Whilst you sing from the roof tops
Dance with the clouds, spin on dandelions
Unrein your joy and let the child out
For your glee should bubble forth uncontrolled
Infecting all that surround you
With elation, happiness and smiles.
