I don't always do happy, I ain't always fulfilled.
You can't always know where you’re going, cos life ain’t that straight.
Oh, if only to be dead; then would I be content?
 
Sit easy, and let your spirit be still.
Stop wanting, stop longing and leave it up to fate.
That to which you are truly blessed is innate; omniscient.
 
Have faith, [with]in yourself, and never stray.
Believe in what you know is right.
Wear this knowledge as a smile; love life.
 
Not always easy to describe, not always need to say.
The emotions we show. The wars we fight.
Try relaxing, sitting back, don't panic - let your spirit thrive.
 
Otherwise be doomed to live your life in scorn.
So, feel free to live life; to savor every moment and strive
 
For more, however, beware that without contentment we are forlorn.
