Painted Smile

Thought about it

Rethought about it

I’m happy

Genuinely happy

Thought about it

For the first time

Honestly happy

I’ve always been in a good mood

Always content

I’m now discontent with content

I thought I knew happiness

I didn’t know happiness

I knew content

I knew positive

Those aren’t happiness

Efficiently satisfied

Melancholy façade

A painted smile on a bare wall

The symptoms of happy

Though unafflicted

I’ve grown strong

I’ve grown tall

I’ve climbed over that wall

With its misleading graffiti

Stationary isn’t happy

Happiness is in motion

In every next step

Just don’t turn around.
