Happy Journey to You!

Jindagi Ek Paheli Hai,
But we don't have to solve it
We just have to live on
And try and enjoy every bit

If we are happy, we gain
When we are sad, we lose
And whether to be happy or sad
We alone have to choose

Even a tragedy can be useful
If we learn from it something
And remember that we came empty handed
And will take from here nothing

Whenever I feel little bad
I just remember that this
World has given me what I have
And more I have than I miss

I came so naive into the world
But it gave me love and shelter
No doubt some stones do come flying
But cant we hold up a filter?

Cant we sieve them and grasp only
The niceness that comes our way
Another reason for cribbing is to see
Others having a nicer day

But remember 'you think' they are happy
They have problems of their own
So you're the luckiest one out here
A happier person, you've not known

If you're still feeling sad and weary
Just list down all your sorrow
Beside every sorrow,write a joy
And you'll be happier tomorrow

The average of our lives is joy
It is beauty and contentment
Since we were born empty and will leave the same
Such an average can cause no resentment

If you're still not convinced then try this trick
It's a secret I'm telling you
Convince yourself, that you're happy and lucky
And you'll become happier too

We are travelers on the path of life
We have nothing to lose or gain
We are grateful to God for sending us on this journey
Which gives 100 joys for every pain

Happy Journey to You!!!
