Oh Happiness!

Many a time, people think that when they are wealthy, healthy or achieve a particular milestone in their lives, then they are or can be happy.

But do you know what?

Immediately such goals are attained, they set new ones then move to the next goal they have set for themselves. They are anxious to met this new goal hence, its pursued with so much vigour! It looks like the previous achievement does not mean anything to them anymore!

 Some may say that's being ambitious. If that is the case, so where do you draw the line between ambition and happiness. Or perhaps,  in the quest of even understanding happiness and what exactly it means to us at different stages and times of our lives.

My thoughts in this poem...

We seek you in different ways
We hope to have you
We reach out for you
Oh happiness!

We seek you in our beliefs
We reach out for you in our thoughts
We look for you in our dreams
We yearn for you every stage of our lives
Oh happiness!

We put so much hope in you
We have so much faith in you
We have so much expectations from you
Oh happiness!

Who really are you 
Where are you
Are you real or not
Oh happiness!

Can we ever find you
Can we ever understand you
Can we ever be satisfied by you
Oh happiness!

Thanks.

A lot of things happened these past few years and I just couldn't write! It was so bad that I even contemplated shutting down this blog...
