    The key to happiness is finding a way to take all the negative energy
    and turn it into positive charge
    instead of living for love, I should learn to love living..
    Instead of searching for a soul-mate, my soul should be searching for peace of mind
    I need to re-shift my focus like I’m driving a stick shift Ford...
    Concentrate on myself and let love mind its business
    just that very word makes me yearn for it...
    But I’m realizing I’ll never have what I desire
    I have to dedicate myself to being happy without love
    life holds many more pleasures and things to experience
    maybe I’m too young, maybe I’m not prepared...
    Even though I long for the feeling, I have to suppress it
    my energy will be spent on doing things to better myself and those around me
    I will continually strive towards contentment, without what I thought I needed
    life will be so much more enjoyable without the constant void in my heart
    no more feeling sorry for myself, no more loneliness
    only positive thoughts and meaningful actions
    I hope I don’t miss out on something beautiful with my new outlook...
    But if it waits until I stop searching and then shows up...
    I must have never been meant to be in love.....
