The Weight Of Joy

Too much time in sorrow
Too much hurt and anger

Too little time for happiness
But that’s the cold, hard truth of it

Trouble seems to linger
While joys slip quickly by

So make the most of your pleasure
And reap fully every joy

Do not dwell on anger
Do not give it your time

For it takes more than it deserves
With or without our permission

Do not pay attention
When hurt demands more time

Be stingy with sadness
But generous with joy

And tip the scales in your favor
Every single time you can
