The Thin Threads Of Happiness - Poem by John Sensele

Beneath thin happiness threads
On which life sighs and cries
Lies hope which spreads
Belief in the future beneath blue skies

Floating up there beyond reach
Beyond education and erudition
Embracing truths that teach
Hope in which happiness finds fruition

Harnessed in veracity and sagacity vessels
From which spill serenity
Dignity, amity and utility parcels
Caressing soft centres of unity

Which elevate the quality of life humanity longs
To achieve, perceive and receive to complete
Cycles of happiness in soft songs
Whose might ensures all traces of derision, delusion and division human hearts delete.
