Born To Be Happy

When you have gone through
so much pain in your life
Then unhappiness is almost
like a secure coat
around your shoulders
Stitched with the well-known
feeling of ache

The coat may look old and outworn,
it may feel heavy
and it may not fit no more
But you’re used to it
like a comfortable second skin
that you think
protects you from even more hurt

But if you take off the coat
you will see that
it is your natural state
to dance, to play and to laugh,
to be light and to be free,
from fear and pain
For you are born to love
and to be unapologetically happy
