From the bottom of the Ocean

Sadness is a deep emotion
more deep than happiness
happiness flies in the air
carrying you on its wings
elation is the flight
of happiness.

Sadness weighs you down
like an anchor tied to your feets
sinking but slowly
taking you down into the water
slowly, slowly choking
to death.

If the eagles of happiness
do not come in time
I shall be buried
the anchor drowning my soul.
