Now playing: happiness

My happiness mantra: let it go
Holding on to whatever should’ve been /
could’ve been / might’ve been / unfortunately was
wastes that moment of potential happiness
Anyway, each negative has a positive:
I forgot karate / he’ll go tomorrow
Faint stubborn soapscum / the shower’s clean
Cookies are soft / better than burnt
I snapped / but I didn’t yell
Living presently offers more happiness than
living in moments that never were.
