Hello world! I am Joy!
Hello little girl or boy.
How are you? Are you having fun?
Do you dance in the rain and bask in the sun?
I’ll tell you something that’s really true;
This world is bright and fun and new!
Do you believe in magic? I can tell you that it’s real…
Your magic is within you – it comes from how you feel.
Whenever you are happy, that’s when your magic shines,
Just follow Joy and you will see how everything entwines!
You see, I like adventure, and I like to grow.
What I think becomes my life, and I can change what I know.
When you’re feeling joyful that’s when your magic will shine through;
Just follow your bliss, and you can’t miss finding something fun to do.
If I want to be a mermaid, then that is what I’ll be;
It’s all in how you feel, not just what you see!
If I want to have a unicorn, then I can have that too;
You see, it’s in believing, not just what you do.
Sometimes I’ll dance with dragons, breathe fire, and roar out loud,
I want to live this life in a way that makes me proud.
Sometimes I’ll fly with fairies, rise, and soar up high above,
I know that all is well when I live my life with love.
I love this life that burns so bright,
The bustling days, the peaceful night.
The sun that gives us light and heat,
The many people that I meet.
The clouds that scuttle through the sky,
The rivers deep and mountains high.
The waves that crash on oceans’ shore,
The way life brings us more and more.
But if you feel sad, don’t worry – that feeling is fine too.
Your magic will still be there when you’re all done feeling blue.
Hug someone, or have some fun, or stay in bed all day…
Read a book, or climb a tree – just relax and play!
In a blink you will find joy again, and when you do you’ll see,
All is well, and happiness will bloom for you and me.
The possibilities are endless: too many by far to count,
Is there such a thing as problems? Not ones we can’t surmount!
Enjoy each moment as it comes, the joy is in the now.
Happiness is who you are, you already know how.
If you can imagine it, then know you can succeed,
In having anything you want and everything you need.
