Quest For Happiness - Poem by Howard Michael Bricker
As we weave the course of our lives, we begin to strive for what we want most.
Is it wealth, fame, or security?
What is behind every goal is our quest for happiness.
Thus we begin our search down the pathways of life.
It is during this quest that most of us lose something along the way.
Our obsession for success begins to blot out the most improtant ingredient necessary to find happiness
Even if we have had it during our lifetime, we tend to be neglectful
Materiality supplants love.
Objects replace affection
Vacations, TV., movies become our communication
What has happened to love?
Where has the true warmth of love gone?
How long has it been since you have gazed into the eyes of the one
How long has it been since you felt that special, 'look of love? '
We become mired down into materiality.
Finding less time for loving expressions.
This is the price paid for success
Love becomes the loser..
And our quest for happiness
