The Road to Happiness


A Song by K. Brendi Poppel


How did I get so low?  I don’t know.

Nothing is going right, my life is a mess,

Every day’s a struggle, I wish I knew

The road to happiness.


The road to happiness, the road to love,

Where dreams come true and God up above

Has provided for our every need

I wish I knew how to succeed.


Happiness comes when you least expect it,

When you’ve knocked on every door and been rejected,

The road to happiness is paved with pain

If you want to smell the roses, you have to face the rain.


The road to happiness is washed with tears,

Those who truly travel it have faced all their fears,

You can’t run away, there’s nowhere to hide,

True happiness comes from inside.


Storms of life come and go, but we all know,

Challenges we face are opportunities to grow,

Every dark cloud has a rainbow inside,

So hold on for the bumpy ride.


Happiness comes in a million disguises,

This old, dusty road of life is full of surprises,

Just when you’re about to give up on success,

You realize you’re really on the road to happiness.
