Poem -

Are You Happy?

It's the dead of winter.
The snow is falling.
You're stuck inside
with nothing to do once again.

You look out the window,
see the snow-covered driveway
and you find yourself wishing
it was already spring.

The sun is setting on another day
and there's a voice in your head.
You hear it asking,
Are you happy?

The spring is here now.
The flowers are growing
but you don't feel the way
that you hoped you would.

You still feel like
you aren't worth much.
You paint a picture
just to throw it away.

Through the darkness inside you
a voice is taunting.
It knows the answer but it asks anyway,
Are you happy?

Are you happy
when the rain is pouring?

How could you be happy?

The sun is setting on another day
and there's a voice in your head.
You hear it asking,
Are you happy?
