  What if....
the pain, the sorrow, the tears in life
Could be solved with such a quick fix
As the removal of our appendix?
It is a bonus an extra of parts
With it absent a contentness starts
It would seem so simple
an emotional gain
A nip a tuck a pat on the hand
No more tears, no more fears
Strongly on two feet you'd stand
Head up high with eyes all dry
Emotions under control
with little to no discomfort
in seven to ten days
No need to mope or spin your minds wheels
Pondering your feelings and making them heal
All is better once its gone
Never to return and haunt you again

Is complete happiness the secret life goal
Or would sad emotions still linger deep in our soul?

I liked the poem, but not the title.

any suggestions as to a change in the title? I am open for ideas!
