Happiness defined. Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.


Happiness is the feeling good,
A state where worry is absent.
Happiness is much sought after.
Happiness is the life's purpose.

To feed the senses gives happiness.
To feed ego gives happiness.
To spend libido gives happiness.
To feel safe also is happiness.

Let them come without prejudice
To the interest of others.
Discard such happiness that fails
In the conscience clearance.

Happiness that would accrue from
Showing mercy, giving pardon
And doing voluntary helps
Is higher as comes from goodwill.
