My Responsibility

To the devices of others
Happiness is fleeting
Blown by the breeze
Of their current mood
Leaving a tristful heart
Picking up the pieces
The tenacity of the search
For more permanence
To the joyful feeling
Brings the realization
Only I control my happiness
In the hands of another
It has much less importance
Than it does to me
My smile
My responsibility
