Pursuit of happiness

Inspired by ilene Bauer’s poem ‘Pursuit’

Pursuit of happiness

I read a little poem today
I smiled at what the words did say
About pursuit of happiness
Some politician’s words I guess!!

No need to pursue happiness
With joy the power did you, bless
Put your attention deep within
Then watch the happiness begin

It is not people, wealth nor toys
That bless you with this endless joy
It’s in your soul, just coax it out
You must find out what loves about.

Don’t pursue it, just let it in
Find love, and let your life begin.

    wise words my friend, to many can't see further than the length of their arm, yet to see further you must look within to find your sight, only then can you see beyond yourself, finding peace from understanding
