You know what's my favorite thing in the whole world?
When I talk to someone
Especially kids my age
Or grown ups
Or anyone really
And I mention something that they love
And their whole face lights up like the Fourth of July
Like there are fireworks in their eyes
And they come back
All these people who walk around in a stupor
With their faces blank as a white wall
Come back down to Earth
And just start talking and laughing
Because they are thinking about something they love
And for a minute they go,
"Hey, this isn't so bad after all"
"Life isn't so bad after all"
You know what's my least favorite thing in the world?
When they start thinking again
About things that don't make them happy
All piling up
And every thought makes their eyes dimmer
And makes their shoulders slump
Like they're getting handed more and more schoolbooks
To weigh them down
So they go away, and wander around
Back in their stupor
Far away from Earth
Pushing themselves through the motions
Of a normal day
Of a normal life
And forgetting what it is that'd make them happy
You know what's my second favorite thing in the world?
Don't forget what makes you happy
