Happiness is Nowhere

lonely-monsterHappiness is nowhere.

Happiness is now  here.

What’s the difference?  Only air

which sometimes fills the space for years


We hope that happiness will come

although its presence may be fleeting

They say it lingers long for some

but others swear it dodges meetings


Yet while we cry, “Oh, if only!

When will this monstrous waiting end?”

Happiness wanders lost and lonely

searching for a faithful friend

  1. Happiness IS fleeting. JOY, on the other hand … 😉

  3. Happiness is transient. It seems to be all around us. But never within. I’ve always found that odd.
    Also, very well written. I absolutely loved reading it ❤

    Well done, Mitch! You are so right: happiness CAN to be found around us, if only we look for it. Sometimes a bit of prompting does wonders–a smile, a kind word, a small favor–and suddenly we feel happy because we brought happiness to someone else.

    Hi Mitch,

    Love it. Love your poem and the picture as well. Great imagery. True, happiness is temporal, lost, and fleeting. Joy, that is different. Eternal, ever-present, and helps the lost get found.

    Thanks for sharing your creativity brother. I would like to talk soon about doing that imagination episode. I am in Master work right now, but send me your number and we can connect. My email is: garyavants66@gmail.com.
