Treasure Island

Happiness Is Attained


And what is happiness
Is happiness really attained
Through fame through truthfulness
Through sense gratification
Through self-control self-interest
Peace opulence renunciation consumption
Sacrifice penance charity vows
Regulated duties that I
Can't say, my dear but I say
Happiness is within us we must search it out
Though it differs from person to person
And what is happiness best known to person concerned.

    Happiness is within us but often attained too. It is a process of multiplication as well. A fine composition sir. (Report) Reply
