I'll Be Happy When... (The Big Lie) - Poem by Chuy Amante

Happiness is not hiding
but rarely is found
Happiness is abiding
only in the NOW
all around

It will never be
down the road a bit
nor will it be
when there is more wit

All that lies ahead
in future is false
it's here right now
dancing the NOW Waltz

If true happiness
is not my lot
wrong interpretations
I have bought

When all that disturbs
loses it power
happiness is restored
in that holy hour

Good fortune?
'Maybe' or 'Is it so? '
I don't judge,
just glow with the flow

    You pretend to be care free,
    And not sure of your links,
    But you are much deeper,
    Than you want people to think
