Those Who Seek Happiness


If the happiness is hidden,
in the brackets of human,
We may see the smiling human,
admiring their go down,
Where they have hunted
and kept all those hearts,
Cannibalistic feast,
drowned in the fantastic spirits,
But we see the frowned faces,
trembling in fear
On the canopy
of the dream fantasies,
With no added flavor,
they don’t know to love,
As the love is believed
to be bottled up in the shelves.
always left there for the revisit,
as it may not accompany us to be peaceful.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
