what Happiness is

a single chaptered poem about a man who found himself seaching for Happiness in the material things of this world.

Chapter 1

what Happiness is

he went to the bar

to try to find Happiness

as they poured him a glass full of beer.

he tried to go home

but found himself lost

for his head was no longer clear.

it was too bad he didn’t know that Happiness can’t be drunk.

he went to the store

to try to find Happiness

inside botles and bottles of pills.

he stumbled back home

and doused the pills down

and for a moment his emptiness was filled.

it was too bad he didn’t know that Happiness can’t be bottled.

he went to a girl

to try to find Happiness

as she pressed her mouth to his lips.

he dragged himself home

his heart cold and empty

reality slipping through his grip.

it was too bad he didn’t know that Happiness can’t be touched.

he went to the casino

to try to find Happiness

in the piles of money he won.

he flew himself home

in his new private jet

he had so much when many had none.

it was too bad he didn’t know that Happiness can’t be bought.

his mom came to him

to try to show him Happiness

in the people that he knew and loved.

she took him back home

and brushed back his hair

said nothing, only held him tight in a Hug.

it was there in that moment

so unlike the rest

that he finally understood.

it’s not the things that you buy

or the money you have

but the acts that you do that are good

in order to find

Happiness.
