The pursuit of happiness,
A declaration, or simply a film.
A goal in life,
To pursue it when it’s already there,
Are we truly aware?
What is happiness?
A full belly, a full plate.
Does it escape?
Or do we banish it upon a whim?
Is it found in righteousness or the darkest sin?
I wish I knew, confusion sometimes blinds.
Am I at peace with happiness, is it a friend of mine?
I see it, I feel it, I love it.
I’ve found it in fits and starts.
I think I’ve decided.
Happiness is in mine, it’s in all of our hearts.
