The Happiness Choice

My mom,
she tells me
that happiness is a choice.

I have to wonder,
is it really?

For some,
yeah,
it is.

But for me,
and others like me,
it simply can’t be.

It hurts too much.

It’s like
the depression
is consuming the happiness
and taking away
that choice.

Sure,
you can fight it.

Sure,
you can try.

And that, too,
is a choice,
but the initial happiness
inside,
is that a choice.

To be happy
is a choice.

Happiness itself
is a condition.
