Majesty

Location

Warmth.
It envelops my being,
like that feeling you get when you pee your pants.
They always make sure to keep me from being
Lonely.

Life.
They breathe it into me.
Every joke they tell, from the punny ones to the pull-your-hair-out lame ones,
they seem to do eveything to keep me from being
Sad.

Love.
Despite my views on love, despite my rejection of it,
despite me making myself a fool during Valentine's because of it
they love me and I love them and I wonder
Why?

Family.
Sometimes they're good, and sometiimes they're bad.
Mine was a mix of both with a bit of hot peppers.
But the good outweighed the bad, and they gave me
Hope.

Friends.
You can choose them, or they can tackle you from behind.
Both situations occured, but I wouldn't have had it any other way
because they gave me something I strived for-
Acceptance.

Happiness.
It surrounds my life.
I hear it in the voices of my friends and family,
whether it be laughter or casual chats.
I can hear the beauty of Happiness 
in
Me.
