Why Tie Things To My Happiness? - Poem by Alice Perfect

tying things to my happiness
is attaching a thick law book
to it, full of rules and
regulations to manage my
happiness
decreasing it, adding a few drops,
regulating and timing it

there is another way

Attach nothing to your happiness
let it abide and reign
and rain on no parade
let it be untouchable
unassailable, undiminishing
forever

happiness and suffering
are not bedfellows

    Yes.Happiness gets blocked if there's particular rules and regulation on its way.A great write! Sounds like Shelley, the rebellious poet. (Report) Reply

    no, that would be our ego preventing it from being there
    just be happy no matter what! always, no other option
