Happy goes right.
Sad goes left.
Both are a problem.
A problem of theft.

Everyone feels them.
Everyone steals them.
But what happens the most.
Is that they steal them both.

And they leave them somewhere.
Somewhere here.
Somewhere there.

They may do it out of love.
They may do it out of spite.
But some only choose the left,
and some only the right.

But some go neither.
Some go a different way.
Not the happy.
Not the sad.
The right which make you humble
The left which makes you little.
The way that they go…..
Is right down the middle.
