Too many cooks spoil the broth,

That’s why between emotions we get caught.

Sometimes we cry and mourn,

Sometimes we laugh from dusk ‘til dawn.

Happiness doesn’t lie in following others,

It lies in finding yourself, expanding your capabilities further.

Be happy the way you cherish,

Follow your dream before this small life can perish.

When needed, fill up yourself with tears and be angry,

Because life is a journey twisty and tangy.

Tears and anger calm the mind,

And finally happiness we can find.

Some incidents leave us befuddled and shocked,

Some leave us quite and mocked.

But sometimes it’s nice to think more and be quite,

To help us come from a place dark to a place bright.

Life is a race, rather than winning, explore the track,

And once moved forward, look back.

Don’t forget the journey, for it’s more important than the goal,

And keep laughing, it enlightens your soul.

So, love yourself, be yourself,

Cry out and express yourself.
