    If you are so happy
    Why are you so sad
    You have what you always wanted
    Yet you feel bad

    You are beautiful
    You are trim
    You have good height
    You are slim

    Yet what is lacking in your life
    Is it because you never became
    Someone's wife

    You have job
    You have income
    On the weekends you
    Go someplace and have fun

    Why are you so sad
    Is it that you are repenting
    For doing something so bad

    Your neighbors invite you for cake
    You make them your famous milk shake
    But at the end of the day
    Couples go home hand and hand
    But you don't need a man
    You know how to take a stand

    If you are so happy
    Why are you so sad
    If you have beach view
    Of your swanky condo
    Why do you feel so mad

    Did someone says something wrong
    Did someone strike a bad chord
    Of an old, re-run outdated song

    Did someone step on your eggshell
    Did someone make a comment
    Did someone do something so revolting
    To make you vomit

    If you are so happy
    Why are you so sad
    If people call you beautiful
    Certainly, you feel glad

    Don't you want someone to call your own
    Don't you want someone to call you their
    Warmth, hearth, and home

    If you are so happy
    Why are you so sad
    If you are so sad
    Is it too late to turn
    Back the hands of time
    And to pursue what
    You wish you truly had

    Sometimes the best poetry comes from unexpressed pain.

    We all suffer pain

    Once we outgrow pain we leave

    Mother Earth's arms

    And go to Higher Consciousness

    @SuiDhaaga Wow! Well put. I am sure all of us have been there, done that, at some time, in some form or fashion.

    The way I see it, Happiness and Sadness are two sides of the same coin. When I am Sad I am happy because I know if I am in sadness, happiness must be around too :) like day and night. If I am in the middle of the night, I know I am closer to Sunrise. And when I am happy I try to make the most of it and be as happy as happy can be because I know if I am in happiness, sadness must be around too :) I might as well enjoy while it lasts :) without worrying about when it's gonna end. It's just a game called life, we will be fine as long as we don't attach ourselves or identify too much with either of them as neither of them is permanent. Maybe that's what you meant when you mentioned Higher Consciousness.

    I know, easier said than done but all I am saying is, it's doable :)

    Another way of making this happen that I recently learnt from a Whats App forward was the *5 essential "C"s for life*, as below:

    Don't criticize
    Don't cry
    Don't complain
    Don't compare
    Give compliments

    It reveals or echoes a spinster’s heart & mind.
    God Bless.

    This is great advice. Hard to follow, but doable as you mentioned. How easy it is to fall into the trap of one of the C's.

    You are right, happiness and sadness are two sides of the same coin. When one is awake, the other is asleep.

    Absolutely right. A spinster can make herself seem happy on the outside, perhaps young and vivacious. Inside she is crying.
