"When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down 'happy'. They told me I didn't understand the assignment, and I told them they didn't understand life."

I don't want the negativity in my life,
Nor the pain and sadness.
I always want the happiness and positivity,
And I want love and joy for the world.

I don't want the degrading words that will bring others down,
Nor the judgement of others that aren't informed.
I want the uplifting of strangers and friends alike,
And I want love and joy for all people.

I don't want the violence in the world,
Nor the harsh punishments that come with crimes.
I want all to see the justice that we all have,
And I want live and joy for those who don't often see them.

I don't want the outcasts of the world to be ignored,
Nor those same people to feel unloved.
I want everyone to feel like they belong,
And I want love and joy for everyone in the world.

The author's comments:

The negativity in the world can be overwhelming, but if we can work together to make the world a more positive place, then there wouldn't be as many things to worry about that have to do with the safety of future generations and the ones we love.
