Smile #7: AMAZING (MAGIC IN ALL THE RIGHT PLACES)

*****
**
*****

There's magic in all the right places
in the good-hearted people's faces
And when you have control over yourself
you have the right to get out of hell
and pursue what makes you smile
and who makes you feel worthwhile

Isn't it magical to have a blessed life?
Isn't it wonderful to live without strife?
Isn't it amazing?

There's magic in all the right places
in the people who sing you your praises
Because they have it in their good hearts
to compliment you on what sets you apart
from the rest of the negative odds
who only know you by your every flaw

Isn't it magical to pursue happiness?
Isn't it beautiful to live without sadness?
Isn't it amazing?

There really is no secret to happiness...
As long as you stay out of trouble
As long as you avoid the wrong people
There really is no secret to success...

Be wise, make the right choices
Follow the good-hearted voices
Avoid the ones who just live for evil
And then you won't be miserable.

Smile!

    1. i believe there are inner and outer smiles. people don't like happy people that much so best to be happy to yourself than forcing it which will then be artificial. I know where you're coming from. glad you know that being truly happy is tough but hey, all you can do is avoid negative people and things that make you feel unworthy and unloved and pursue things that make you feel happy. :) happy Sunday!!!.

  2. Definitely important to make the right choices in friends. Peers have such an influence on what a person becomes.

    1. there are such people because the world is made up of billions of us so there must be at least a ton of them around us we just have to pray about it and hope to the Lord we will cross paths someday.

    1. thanks Totomai, i'm not whining here or being all weird but it's unfair and i'm just blessed to be so optimistic by nature which makes me believe the best about people. i'm not complaining or anything I'm just saying from experience that in order to be happy, all you must do is pursue happiness. just like how others pursue success, we can also pursue happiness. :)

  6. A very optimistic, upbeat piece. The world needs more of that, I think.

    1. thanks Nissa. another thing that keeps me optimistic is because I listen to a lot of anthemic or uplifting music with messages of hope, success, triumph, love, and happy endings which helps me live a happy life. :)

    1. thanks RK. i like the idea of leading with my poetry. maybe i'll use my poems as empowering mediums for readers across the world if they ever find out about me and this era i'm trying to upkeep because being happy is hard and well, i'm just gifted with this cheerfulness that enables me to live on and not surrender to obstacles in general.

  8. The cadence and repetitions hear lend truth to the ideas. So simple. Why isn't everyone doing it? Sad.

    1. maybe it's because some of us let anger get the best of us or that we have low self-esteems that usually will make us prone to fights and all that. but lately, i've come to find that as long as you live honestly and be free of negativity, hey! we can achieve happiness because that's all that matters.
