Hello. I'm Serena. I want to listen to you. I want to help you help yourself heal. Because I've learned that I can heal myself by healing others. I know pain so I maybe can relate to yours. I might be young but my heart isn't. It listens. So If you want to talk, send me a text. If I'm offline, I'll contact you later but surely. Talk to me if depression, self-hatred or family troubles or anything whatsoever. I'm here for you. smiley 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Happiness
by Raymond Carver


So early it's still almost dark out.

I'm near the window with coffee,

and the usual early morning stuff

that passes for thought.

 

 

 

 

When I see the boy and his friend

walking up the road

to deliver the newspaper.

 

 

 

 

They wear caps and sweaters,

and one boy has a bag over his shoulder.

They are so happy

they aren't saying anything, these boys.

 

 

 

 

I think if they could, they would take

each other's arm.

It's early in the morning,

and they are doing this thing together.

 

 

 

 

They come on, slowly.

The sky is taking on light,

though the moon still hangs pale over the water.

 

 

 

 

Such beauty that for a minute

death and ambition, even love,

doesn't enter into this.

 

 

 

 

Happiness. It comes on

unexpectedly. And goes beyond, really,

any early morning talk about it.
