Good Question - Poem by ivor or ivor.e hogg

Of what does happiness consist?
Merely a feeling of content
is it enough to just exist?

Is it just a sometime thing?
Which we experience now and then
that stirs our hearts so they must sing.

If we don’t know the opposite
how can we know that we are glad?
I think it only apposite.

We meditate and celebrate
all the emotions we can feel.
So we with confidence can state.

Today I am not sad but glad
to be who and where I am.
All in all life’s not too bad.

Sadness balances happiness
as sure as day must follow night.
This truth I feel I must express.
