The Secret of Happiness

14 Nov 2007

I figured it out.
Be yourself.
Love yourself.
Stand up for yourself.
Be proud of yourself.
Enjoy yourself.
Rejoice in yourself.

And…
Don’t worry that this is going to piss people off immensely.
We are sacred creatures. All the shit is holy. There is nothing wrong.
Just play, oblivious of others. Connect to them from a connection to yourself, from your heart.
Dare to love.
Trust in the power of being yourself to bring you happiness. Don’t believe that your happiness depends on others. Noone’s happiness depends on others.

The woman named Iris
gave birth to the goddess
In her son who can’t say her name
Because of all the pain

I miss you, but I’m glad you’re gone
I want you but I’m not alone
I’m haunted by you But I’ll get you gone
if it takes me all my life long

Take back the pain you gave me
Take back what doesn’t belong to me
Take back the shame you gave me
Take back what doesn’t belong to me

I’m Irish, I’m English,
I’m Moslem, I’m Jewish,
I’m a girl, I’m a boy
And the goddess meant for me only joy
And real love requires you
give up those loves whom you
think you love best
Love puts you through the test
And only loyal love will bring me happiness

Take back the rage you gave me
Take back the hatred you gave me for me
Take back the anger that nearly killed me
Take back what doesn’t belong to me

Thanks Sinead.
