Heart Divided, Mind Shattered

If anybody asks me if I am happy
I would definitely say I am not
Having lost the meaning of happiness
between now and last night, I am sad.

Tomorrow, if anybody asks the same
I would jump in glee and say yes
I am definitely because there's me
The other side that longs to be free.

Yet again, in the future if time's short
And nothing is going right with work
I would be lost for words on what counts
For happiness - my freedom or serfdom.

You make me jump in anticipation
Whenever you have the gumption
But somewhere your procrastination
Causes a break in my exultation...

If it only depended on me, I work alone
but so much hinges on what you want done
Your heart divided, your mind shattered
We fell short, we are now fettered...

Life itself is a divded experience, sometimes it's pleasure sometimes it's pain.
Happiness is- o the golden deer o the hen of golden egg laid o the white elephant so cost; so dot dot dot of breath in this hand it is easily touched but no more abruptly! ! ! ! Happiness is the mind condition on basis of theory of relativity! great 10+++++
