Be Happy Out Of Happiness (New, Edited) - Poem by Abdul Wahab

Perhaps here there is none
With out a desire

a desire for happiness
I have one, too
but it is totally different from you

that yours is out of conclusion
that you are not happy
but mine is out of happiness

and if your desire is not fulfilled
you are led to the world

where efforts of you themselves turns into anger
but I remain ice cool

and I find my myself in content
which is here within myself

but you are under captivation
and never allowed to look into yourself

the desire for happiness is itself
an obstacle to attain it like

a Buddha who is a hurdle
to a Buddhist

as he follows him
and he kills his uniqueness

so you are after happiness
and it kills you

so KILL it before it kills you
and have a desire to be happy out of happiness.
