Treasure Island

veeraiyah subbulakshmi

Our Happiness Is Within Us..

I have explored through the forest,
Listening to the silence to seek your feet,
I have wandered through the houses,
Looking for a friend, he may hide in cloaks,

I have worried day and night without sleep,
Searching for the missing pieces, misplaced,
I am wondered now that you are within me,
Wasted is half of my pathetic and generous life,

thought of rescuing you from outside,
Peace and happiness can't be got,
through the strokes of pen on the papers,
it is within me, but caged with unknown grills,

Those grills are very fragile,
can't be collapsed with self confidence.

    So true, our happiness does indeed lay inside us, tho we spend the majority of our lives trying to find it in shallow pools of vanity and deep seas of greed, all the while being manipulated by gurus, gods and governments. Well penned. (Report) Reply

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
