Happy and Sad

I’ve been happy

. . . I’ve been sad.


is better than sad,

but sad

moves me more than happy.


When I’m happy,

I try to stay in  that state.

When I’m sad,

I’m miserable, and work to end my awful state.


When people are only slightly

happy In this middling state,

they do not try in the slightest

to change that state.


But, when in an inwardly sad


they listen to any idea that  may improve that inwardly sad



How do I know such things? As I said, I’ve been happy

And I’ve been sad.


Is better than sad,

but I don’t work to change happy,

however, I work very hard to change sad.
