Silent Muse Saturday THE LAST RECOURSE

Silent Muse

 When pleasure no longer buries the pain
And worry does not pay the bills,
When depression ceases to shield the rage
And anger does not repair the rift,
When hope no longer blunts the fear
And sadness does not bring the dead back to life,
When all feelings have finally quenched
And frustration has yielded to peace,
Happiness is the last recourse.
by Renee Yates

if only we were taught that we choose to be happy or unhappy and that it is not a condition of circumstances.

Deanna makes a great statement. It is good to remember these words of Yates. Thanks for the post Michelle.
