Welcome the Gatecrasher

Be wary of joy without a source tangible, she cautions

You can’t trust a happiness that shows up without announcement, he says

Lockstep, good intentions, counsel and plans shuffle to a side

When happiness decides to betray your professionally curated excuses for misery

When your heart chooses to celebrate without asking permission of circumstances

And your soul goes rogue on the confederacy of gloom by blessing the Lord

Joy sneaks up on you through doors you didn’t know were there

And happy shows up after you forget to issue an invite

With no recourse to facts, it unfurls in warmth within you

In unassuming state of bliss, it spites pain

And it flat-lines the confusing beeps of highs and lows, ushering in shhhh…peace
