I want to…

I want to be the happiest person I know,

I want to look life in the eye,

Not afraid, not telling lies,

Transforming wounds into wisdom

And tears into optimism.

I want to be the happiest person I know

So when my spirits are low,

And everyone has gone,

I can rest my mind and stay calm,

Pleased with what I’ve become.

I want to be the happiest person I know,

So when the years’ll go by

When I turn all gray,

I will be able to say:

I am the happiest person I know.
