Things That Make Me Happy

Sometimes in this crazy thing we call life, we get a little lost. Caught in a trap of darkness, sadness, isolation. Might last an hour, maybe a day, could even be a month. But your job is to find the light. Find your way out of the dark, even if that means you bump into a few walls with arms outstretched.
