Happiness

For my 8th post for the  Blogging A to Z Challenge, I decided to write a poem on a classic topic – the pursuit of happiness. If someone were to find an Eureka instant fix for happiness, he or she would be a billionnaire overnight. 🙂

H for HAPPINESS

The Happiness Within

Happiness; ’tis an age-old pursuit
Humanity’s constant search
Would you rather refute?
Looking, high as the bird’s perch

How much for happiness?
Per chance a billion or two?
How much for completeness?
To make one whole; goodbye woe?

What does it take?
Conquer the highest mountain?
Swim to the abyss of a lake?
Drink from eternal youth’s fountain?

Who can bequeath it?
A father or mother?
The best mate; perfect fit?
Or why does one bother?

Happiness; ‘tis not a void
To be filled and quenched
A gaping hollow; fixed by Freud
Or a deal to be clinched

Happiness comes from within
From the heart and soul; enduring
Fulfilment sprouts from therein
Life enriched; love encompassing
