Sadness wears a person like a cloak,

muting the outside world.

Envy eats away at you from the inside,

changing your entire perspective.

Surprise sounds like gasps,

both in delight and in terror.

Curiosity wants to figure the universe out,

to understand the ancient riddles left by time.

Boredom rides on the waiting periods of life.

Anger holds onto every misdemeanor,

every mistake.

Happiness dreams of days gone by and of days ahead.

Fear lives in that one place inside your brain,

the place where they keep all of the troublemakers.

And where do you reside, my friend?

You reside in my heart, my mind, my soul.
