Pursuit Of Happiness! !


In the pursuit of happiness
I purchased a car
Though it was comforting
Entertaining & satisfying experience
I ended up comparing with others
& my heart again got a scar!

In the pursuit of happiness
I bought a flat
Such a wonderful kick it was
A great feeling of owning something
But it just remained a house
It made me sad, I didn't have a mate!

In the pursuit of happiness
I started looking for a mate
It didn't take long to find a lovely girl
With an assumption that I loved her & she loved me
We settled in my flat to make it a home
It was all good until I found I was entrapped with bait!

In the pursuit of happiness
My life was gone
I don’t remember when I lost my brawn
Life had become a series of yawn
Unless I found the enlightenment of my own
Happiness is not external
It’s an effect of our Internal Dawn! !
