The State of Happy

I have traveled many miles to find this place:

To finally experience a new state of happy.

I left behind a life I couldn’t face

And searched for a world that better fit me.

The grass was greener on the other side,

So I jumped the fence to see for myself.

I made it over in plain daylight

And landed so gently with the grass’s help.

Bruised and tired, I completed my travel.

I fought off a monster and I faced a demon

Who helped me understand why I fought this battle-

Why I have suffered beyond reason.

The feelings I felt when I changed my ways

arrived so quickly and continued in waves.

I quickly moved forward and counted my days

Remembering why I moved to this place.

I don’t regret moving to a state of happy

For reasons that are hard to express.

I can now live freely with a light within me

That burns away any darkness that’s left.
