A Poem by Jeff Bresee

...just had to write this one.


I get a little tired of it -

folks who seem to think

they must be happy all the time

or else they’re on the brink

of some traumatic end

oh yes, like everything is bad

if once in a blue moon

they have to deal with being sad.


It makes no sense to me at all.

Just what do they expect?

They should be happy day and night

and never get set back?

Well, I can’t grasp it, not at all.

In fact is makes me ill

to contemplate if happiness

my every moment filled.


To me that is the same as

eating chicken every meal.

Why would I want that?

God forbid! It simply isn’t real

to think you can be happy

if that’s all you ever know.

You can’t, so just relax a bit...

and let your feelings flow.
