Are the people who are the happiest
people who don’t wear bright colours
every day?
They don’t whistle a happy tune with clothes
to fool themselves into
believing they are happy.
The bright colours keep a person happy
and lift their spirits when they sag.
But I think the happiest people
are the people who sing
because their spirit is already coloured
with splashes of emotion.
I do both so I have to be happy.
I know I am happiest when I sing.
