|As I loaf myself on this padded chair
I think about all the unpleasant things in my life,
I think of those evil days, how my own very existence was endangered.
I think of that past and now I heave a sigh of relief.
‘Happiness is acceptance’-has anyone said to you?
‘Happiness is the only well-being nurturing among all the living beings’
‘Happiness is the only key to a sacred and halcyon life.’
The past robbed me completely but I have in store
No barns of qualms or residues of misdeeds.
That will bring tons of misgivings of a sorry life in future
And will wrack and torment me totally and completely.
I now can smile with overabundance and laugh heartily
I now do not beg for the alms of sheer happiness.
Every atom of my blood pulses with happiness now.
Every atom of my soul coos like a dove now.
Every atom of my body moves gracefully now.
Every atom of my mind thinks blissfully now.
I pulsate with the bounty and mere mirth in everything.
I don’t grouch nor grumble for anything or kind.
I don’t or rather never hesitate to appreciate that
Inevitable beauty in everything of which once I so
Desirous and the one which had eluded me completely.
