Perfectly sad

They say you have a perfect life,
Nothing ever bad
You were such a happy thing,
Now why are you so sad?
Why can’t you just be happy
with everything you have?
It’s hard you see,
I’m not trying to be this way
when I try my best
my happiness always fades to grey
They say everything will be ok
To pray and ask for all this
sadness to be taken away
why am I this way ? Perfectly sad with nothing to cause my pain. They say it’s just a phase it will soon go away. Then why do I feel anxiety every single day? I guess there is no reason for me to feel this way. So why aren’t I happy most days?
