Simply Be Happy

Child’s play on a pretty little pony
Carefree cajoling on the carousel
World weary eyes of an adult
Sees only dizzying futile repetition
No destination or measure of success
Just round and round in agony
On the fairground wheel of life
With ups and downs for all riders
Some choosing a premature dismount
Leaving grieving where joy should be
For it is a fun fair and happiness abounds
Laughter and frivolity the child’s example
Follow it and simply be happy
