Why can’t we just be happy with what it is we’ve got?
Frantically searching for the things that we have not.
Hoping that the day will come to find that pot of gold,
The rainbow takes us to it is the hope we have been told.
If someone we love and care about is sick or has bad news,
We feel guilty for moaning, suddenly aware what we could lose!
Yet reassure ourselves convincingly, our gripes are justified,
“It’s relative to our lives” we say “our feelings shouldn’t be denied.”
But why can’t we just be happy with the life that we are living?
A never ending quest, relentless search so unforgiving.
A faster car, a bigger house – the fridge is just too small!
What people who are sleeping rough would give just for a friend to call.
But that is them and this is us, we can’t help how we feel,
These feelings are our very own, our truth is very real.
We’re sorry that they have it tough, from the bottom of our hearts –
But we need that handbag, pair of shoes and that painting is fine art!
So if we have the fastest car, the best clothes and the fridge,
Will that take us to utopia, our rainbow and our bridge?
The truth is no, it’s not enough, we will always want for more –
Because happiness comes from within and it’s us we should adore.
Not cars and shoes, hats or bags, the biggest fridge you’ve ever seen,
It’s loving who you are inside, comfort in the person you have been,
Who you are and how you live – the way that you exist.
Stop searching for that pot of gold or complete happiness could be missed!
NOT MEANT TO BE PREACHY…IT WAS BORN FROM ME MOANING TO MY HUSBAND THAT I WOULD DEFINITELY BE HAPPIER IF I JUST HAD A BIGGER FRIDGE!
