A Secret About the Light Inside

What Makes You Happy_Tagged

You aren’t fooling anybody, Mr. Happy Pumpkin.
Especially me.

I saw what they did to you.
I helped in fact.

Your insides were full of seeds and string.
But, we scooped it out—my mommy, my sister, and me.

And now, here you sit,
with a happy smile and a wink.

Mommy says, “It’s possible to show the world you are happy,
even if your insides are scooped.”

She knows the secret. Something about a light inside.

She says it is hard sometimes, but if we show our light,
and make others happy,
we can be happy too.

So, you aren’t fooling anybody, Mr. Happy Pumpkin.
I see your light!

And hey! It makes me happy!
