What They Call Happiness

A back door was left open wide,
I think it's all I got.
I'll take it, try to make it last
And give this one more shot.
I step into another world
where magic becomes real.
And I realize that happiness
is not something you feel.
Something that just happens or
a gift that you can take.
It's what you do with life, it's a
decision that you make.

yes! its all up to the individual the way they live their life. you can still have joy in suffering, and you may not be happy about the obstacles that appear in front of you, but when it comes down to the basics, its up to you whether or not you keep a good attitude during trials:P love it jade, keep it up!
