‘Happiness’

We travel the world

We make plans

We hope

That if we achieve this and that

Our happiness will finally be a fact

 

We let ourselves be fooled

By the promises of everlasting beauty

By the temptation of easy money

And physical reveries fulfilled

With a touch of a magic wand

 

We surround ourselves with envy

With dreams of servants and palaces

We look down on people

Who go through life

With no such desires

 

The only thing we miss

In this picture of a perfect life

Is the happiness which lingers not

Somewhere in a faraway land

But the closest it could possibly be – deep inside our hearts
