In Pursuit Of Happiness

I thought money will give it to me
But I was so very wrong,
I thought success will give it to me
Again I was wrong.

I thought if I struggle now
I can be happy later,
If I earn now,
I can enjoy it later.

But it seems not to come to me
However hard I try,
It keeps going away from me
My priorities were probably wrong.

Happiness is in the outlook
Happiness is when you keep others happy
There is no point in the pursuit of happiness
It is always with you, just need to see it.

Oh you reveal one of life's greatest secrets in this fine poem. Happiness is not waiting around the corner somewhere. Rather, it is here in the present moment all we need to learn is to fully live in that current moment.
