I Will Be Happy (no Matter What)

I Will Be Happy (no Matter What) long poem

Photo by Gail Frederick


Well sometimes I feel like running away
I tell myself there’s not much keeping me
Here anyhow but then I hear a voice saying
I love you baby so want you stay, please
Stay…well and I always do but this time
You’ve got some major suckin’ up to do
Things have changed ‘cuz I have changed
Almost like overnight somehow I’m no
Longer the fool you took for granted
Yesterday now and so I don’t care if you
Approve of my new lifestyle now or not
You better accept me for me or you can
Bite me it’s the only choice you got ‘cuz
Let me tell you here and now I Will Be
Happy No Matter What…I’m not scared
Anymore to be on my own I know I
Will survive and like that old saying goes
You can’t keep a good man down and so
I Will Be Happy No Matter What…they say
Love is never having to say you’re sorry so
If I hear those words come out of your
Mouth one more time I’ll give you something
To be sorry for ‘cuz I’m not scared to be on
My own anymore believe me or not and I
Will Happy, I Will Be Happy No Matter What!
