True Happiness - Poem by Christopher Cariad

We've always wanted what we couldn't have.
But will happiness be found in these things
That will never be ours?
I find that happiness lyes
Within the hearts of us all.
Not within these things that are not meant to be desired.
You'll find your path when you open your eyes.
True happiness is found within.

    Happiness is a state of mind, it can be induced by auto suggestion as it comes from within out minds. Merely wanting what we've got is a giant stride towards being happy. I like the articulation and insight of the poem. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply
