Breathe in, let it out.
You’re alive, without a doubt.
Just relax, look around.
Stressed to the max; just calm down.

Don’t take for granted-
What God has planted.
Don’t ever look past
What moves so fast.

You are you, and I am me.
Look at all that we could be.
Look deep within your soul,
Your heart- it should be very full.

Look at your dreams,
Imagination-filled to the seams.
Remember who you are,
Don’t ever stray too far.

See who you want to be,
Let your soul wander free.
Find the good in the bad,
And find the happy within the sad.

The author's comments:
I have always dreamed of getting a tattoo that says "Happiness and Hope" because I believe life is all about being happy, and when you cannot be happy, you have to have hope that you can be happy again. This poem is basically what that tattoo would mean to me, if I got it.
