Is happiness more than distraction?
I wish I could say so.
I wish I knew just what it was,
That makes “happiness” so?
I feel the breeze softly blow,
And the warm golden sun.
The beauty is so great I worry,
It’s just a distraction.
It’s said life is a middle road,
Between two vast extremes.
So I wonder why I cannot find it,
Even in my dreams?
Beauty is sad and cannot last,
So I promptly reminisce;
And wind up just as sad as if,
There were no “happiness”.
Yes, it is sure, I am insane;
And certainly too intense.
Oh, I wish I could change out my brain,
And stop living ‘melodramatic-suspense’.
However, this drama called life,
Has always been this way for me.
The plot plays on through the screen,
Of my minds’ TV.
