    Happiness is a thing the human being always interested to get from be it from the parents, society, and another human being happiness expects by all. This is a good poem of happiness and the poet deserves such inspiration from the readers I think. (Report) Reply

    An epiphany. Many think that the source of happiness is material things. But here, through your personal enlightenment (thanks, in part, to your mother) , you’ve shown that true happiness is found in wisdom, love, and a beautiful soul—not in material things. Thank you for sharing. (Report) Reply

    When all is said and done, appearance seems to matter so little to our overall happiness, unless we are mentally unsound..otherwise I should have had a terrible life, based upon my looks..people often enjoyed telling me I had none or describing what they considered my worst flaws! But I still found happiness, and I don't want any other beings to have to suffer..we all need so much love when we are little, so that we can learn to accept ourselves and love ourselves for what we are inside of this opaque shell.

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
