are you happy

my in search of happiness

to my imagination
happiness is simply a state of mind;
it has nothing to do with money or wealth,
maybe yes.

But some with scores of dollars
are unhappy,
many with a loaf of bread are found smiling,
some have sex daily with many,
but are dissatisfied …
others don’t know what it means
and are still happy
saints they!

happiness over the ages has been queried,
what is it to be happy,
a guy friend of mine explained it to me …..
If you have a hundred dollars
and can spend only ninety nine,
you are happy,
but if you spend one hundred and ten
then where will be happiness…

you have caused yourself strife,
you have happiness itself struck.

be content with what you have,
long or small,
it ain’t too bad,
but happiness cannot be bought across any counter,
it’s deep inside one’s own mind
that does count
and says to each one be happy,
friend daughter, pal or son...

now your comments,

Not sure what to call this , probably free prose..
This theme would make a good poem, you have the bones of a good write but it has read like a shopping list of things to do and how to feel, I think better give it a revamp, and see what comes out of it..
If I have time I shall have a look at it , mind you replies to my comments seem to have dried up and even comments on writes so there is plenty of that thing you call time lol, Yours Ian.T

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..

now no one reads me
I will just wait and see
before I post any more
virgin poetry
