Happiness - Poem by Joshua Swanson

Happily accepting whatever I am thrown;
Knowing sincerely of the many people alone;

Wondering how they face their indescribable thoughts;
Of unhappiness and desires and memories long lost;

Finely accepting whatever life has;
Seeing people's thoughts, hidden behind a mask;

Wondering how they face living day to day;
Living unhappy and lowly as if they have no say;

Plainly accepting all that's in store;
Hoping they are reminded of their friends and their amore;

Looking at the pictures hanging on the wall;
Thinking of the stories they hide all in all;

Blankly denying all that I am thrown;
Saying to myself how I eternally should have known;

Happiness lasts for a very short time;
Maybe I'll find it again; hiding among the vines...
