In Pursuit Of Happiness - Poem by Romeo Della Valle

In the pursuit of happiness, ..
I have crossed many bridges…
Climbed many mountains
& traveled many roads;
Some very smooth..
some very bumpy..
I have run very fast…
sometimes very slow…
But, nevertheless,
I have learned my lessons…
I have learned the hard & painful way…
That not all dreams come true..
Happiness becomes a matter.
of the mind and the heart…
Now I cry without tears...
& try to mend my broken heart…

Now I realize..
that where there is an ending..
There is a new beginning..
& what I thought was a loss..
turned out to be..
a blessing from the sky...

    In Pursuit of Happiness is a very truthful poem anybody can relate too, telling the truth about life is very beautifull aswell as inspiring, showing us that when we are down we always can get back up. Very well done 10/10. (Report)Reply

    Very good poem. The rythm is great and the content is inspiring. In pursuit of happiness, all of us are. I have come to realise that happiness lies not at the end but along the way. It lies not in great achievements but in small ransom kind acts. (Report)Reply
