Happiness is but a state of the mind
Looking for it at the table you dined?
A filled stomach and a fuller pocket
Buys delight, as did a diamond locket.
Each has one’s own personal equation
Levels off at peak, horizontal fashion.
Money flaunting buys evanescent change
Wrap of affluenza turns life estrange.
Obscure in snatched moments of phantasy
Sinking highs of drugged satin ecstasy.
Orbiting round the key to happiness
Contentment is hidden in crypticness.
Trapped in a vicious circle of action
Hunting lifelong for gratification.
Love & happiness slithers beyond reach
Perhaps the route opted needs a reteach.
Endless-peace requires subtle openness
Inhaling success-upset with sameness.
