Behind the Poem: Happiness is A Choice

What inspired me to write this poem (Happiness is a Choice)
Is a guy who made my heart ecstatic.
He made me really happy. He said I deserve to be.
He is so good to be true. At times I thought I didn’t deserve him.

But JC sent me someone to remind me that,
“Ask and you shall receive”.
A friend told me that “we decide for what we deserve.”
And that “JC is ready to give us life’s greatest treasures when we’re ready”

But that isn’t the only case.

The situation is difficult, like close to “impossible”.
And it hurts. That at some point I wanted to just give it up.
Let it go, watch it fly, because it aches to fool oneself.
To be lost in a daydream. To live in a fantasy.

I have told myself that this is temporary happiness
and I should wake up from this dreaming.
Because pursuing this is like travelling a road that I know is a dead end.
But I didn’t. Because I just CAN’T.

I want it. No matter how difficult or crazy it may seem.
I desire it. So I decided, I am not giving “us” up without a goddamn fight.
HAHA! And if worse gets worst, well. This gotta be WAR. Rawr!

To mister prince charming, tattoo this in your heart and mind:
We both know this. “Things are crazy.” But jeez, love is madness!
And it’s DIFFICULT. But we don’t need easy remember?
We only need POSSIBLE.
