Definition of Happiness

The princess walks to her ornate window
adorned in a blue dress with red pearls
innocent wishes oppressed under their weight
desiring to walk freely in those green fields
raindrops seeping into parched layers of her soul
she longs to be happy beyond grand castle walls

The little girl hides under a tattered tent
raindrops dripping her precious torn frock
her frayed spirits covered in borrowed rags
dreaming of soft dry velvet bed in a cosy home
waking up to cocooned walls scattering sunlight
she longs to be happy beyond green fields

Happiness floats swaying between the two
to each their own

    Wow! So wonderfully contrasted, we often forget that happiness lies in the little things and that the grass looks greener on the other side, well expressed, Aditi:)

    Very heart-warming dear Aditi. Your pen never fails us! Onto my FAVES...

    I find this to be an intriguing juxtaposition of stanzas, a true balancing act on the teeter-tauter of happiness, Aditi! Warm wishes, Gershon

    I like how you showed the contrast between the two girls Aditi, each one longing for their own happiness in their own world. Good luck in the contest Tom

    This is such a beautiful, moving poem, Aditi. Yes, people from radically different worlds may be trapped in unhappiness! Janice

    Two worlds, so different and so much the same, with each little girl feeling trapped in her circumstances...beautifully expressed emotion in your pen, Aditi. Love and blessings, Rhonda xx
