If You Want To Be Unhappy

If You Want To Be Unhappy

If you want to be unhappy,
Make sure you do these five things.
The first is to control people,
Especially what they think.

The second is to fight life,
To complain and judge against it.
The third is to wish that
Others should give you acceptance.

The fourth is to believe that
Every thought must be true.
The fifth is to take the burden of life,
And believe what happens is up to you.

But if any of that makes you happy,
Throw these words into the wind.
And then in either case it may be clear,
Where happiness really lives.
