Purpose


Even when I was a very young man
I was looking for the purpose of life
I was looking for happiness all over
the world,
In fame and in glamor,
In wealth and in splendor,
not knowing how foolish it was.

Happiness is not out there
Happiness is not in wealth or
splendor.
Happiness is inside me,
In my mind,
In my thoughts,
It is in my perception of the world.

We are the expression of our
thoughts, dreams and desires.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
