    It's more than a feeling to me now
    It's just like a way of living
    I wake up from Good nights
    Into Good mornings
    Just feeling Good
    I feel Good in my blood stream
    So naturally running through me
    Rejuvenated from having Good dreams
    Good is spreadable
    I put in on my bread, my biscuits
    And all over my kisses
    The taste is just gourmet
    Better than anything manmade
    For my appetite plays in its flavors
    So yes Good is edible
    Good is even wearable
    I dress in it
    Decorate my sleeves with it
    It keeps me warm in cold seasons
    That use to last during summer nights
    I buckled it nice and tight around my aura
    Fastened it in my walk and
    Wrapped it around my talk
    Making fashion statements with my smile and
    Shining with its glow
    That many wish they could know and purchase
    But you can't buy this Good
    Its purpose isn't in stores but
    It is retrievable
    It lives eternal
    It gives universal
    And even more than that commercial
    I know what Good is
    Right when it introduced itself
    You see, I knew it was more than a feeling
    When its movement depended on everyting I did
    It became a second, no a primary nature for me
    Because it was easy to master
    Easy to comprehend, safe to understand
    See I didn't mold it, it molded my hands
    Making my heart feel Good to Give again
    And since then
    Good is infinite
    Subtract one O and I even found God in it
    I tattooed it on my memory
    So I wouldn't forget its energy
    Not that I plan on losing it
    But just to show it how much it means to me
    How much it feels free to me
    The blessings it has increased in me
    Made the pain become deceased to me
    I thank Good for being equal
    Because anyone can feel it, if they accept it
    And if you trully address it, you'll witness that
    Things that used to make you cry
    Can't seem to stop you from smiling
    And when things seem to get so bad
    You'll see it's not even that serious
    Good is available
    Today, tomorrow and year-round
    Your ears will notice that it's the best sound
    Because being Okay was put to rest
    And being Great was a lie to make me feel better
    Being All Right was a way to make it through the day
    And being Content was a comfort zone that didn't stay
    You don't find Good too much in the world anymore
    But that doesn't mean it's nonexistent
    With a future in your eyes
    Your glance made me jump out of
    A past that held me for a while
    But since I've been in love
    Good is no longer just a feeling
    Good has become a lifestyle

    Oh my goodness. I love how one line just connects and flows into the next. You stress the important of how "Good" is not random, we have much to do to foster it. Poet, you tuned "Good" every which way but loose, and that's not just good, it's awesome.

    Thank you both. Peace of mind is a beautiful thing and feeling good is just a natural aftermath of it
