Remember One Thing – villanelle

After all that life has thrown at you
When you feel there is so much to do
You are responsible for your own happiness.

We are only as happy as our own feelings
It is too easy to let life crowd our mind
After all that life has thrown at you.

We look to others and wonder if they care
Even when we know they have their own cares
You are responsible for your own happiness.

Economic woes, employment insecurities, much more
Who knows when life’s next battle will begin
After all that life has thrown at you.

When we look in the mirror and reflect on life
It doesn’t do any good to look to another
You are responsible for your own happiness.

Keep your friends close but remember one thing
They can only support the decisions we will make
After all that life has thrown at you
You are responsible for your own happiness.

    When life throws you a lot and you feel like you have so much to do, you must find your own happiness, but you have first to find love and support.
