A Poem About Happiness

Today’s poem is about happiness. But what does it mean to be happy?

Personally, I think it means being satisfied and grateful at the present moment. I’m grateful for having a supportive and loving family, a great job that I enjoy and also pays the bills, good health, freedom (to do as I wish, such as write poems for others and express my thoughts), opportunities, play, etc…

Enjoy and share this poem, and I wish you long-lasting and blissful happiness.


Search For Happiness

A masterpiece,
of art,
Is what happiness,
is to the heart.

It’s much more,
than a state of mind.
When we seek it,
we’re often blind.

Into the future or past,
we often search and stare,
Yet happiness sits,
next to our chair.

We must stop,
looking right through,
What it’s made of
we’ve always knew.

deep inside,
To our very being,
it’s closely tied.

Let’s take a deep look,
and openly embrace,
into our space.

Being in a state of true happiness may vary quite a lot between different individuals. But the feelings and emotions that it ignites are very similar.

I think many of us may postpone being happy in the present, because we may believe that it will happen eventually in the future. But I think we need to keep in mind that our lives will always be filled with obstacles, challenges, and struggles. We just need to learn how to deal with them, and still maintain our happiness during the present.

You’re probably thinking, that’s much easier said than done. I’m not saying it’s easy. I just think we all need to embrace happiness as a way of life (no matter what happens). That type of philosophy will enrich our lives and our memories.

So how do we accomplish that? How do we embrace happiness as a way of life?


With the right/positive attitude and outlook on life, nothing could ever get in our way. It comes down to learning to love life and being able to gracefully deal with whatever life throws at us. And if we don’t like something, we could always make decisions to change it.

Be happy, and enjoy life.
