Are You Happy? - Poem by Geetha Jayakumar

Happiness is the most welcomed guest.
But leaves in no time.
Like a money in hand
The moment you spend
To buy what make u feel happy
Its gone.
When you get what you want.
You will weighs which one was better
Money or the things?
These thoughts take away your happiness.

Can a money buy happiness?
Can a praise buy a happiness?
Can a food buy a happiness?
Can a necessities buy happiness?

Yes, all can buy happiness?
but it will remain with us like a bubble
and its gone.

We run behind our dreams
We work hard to fulfill it.
when they are fulfilled.
Our Next dream is ready.
Sequence of dreams keeps on following.

This will keep on continuing
until and unless we put a break in it.
Happiness is not everlasting!


Everlasting happiness
Comes when mind is calm, peaceful and content.
Happiness will reside in you.


Nothing can bring Happiness but only you.

    I agree, the happiness you get when you have what you want is short lived, It is the happiness in our hearts, that comes from family and friends that is long lasting and that money cannot buy. Lovely written thinking piece. x x (Report) Reply
