Equating happiness with achievements
Gives momentary joy to our temperament.
This equation acts as a temporary inspiration
Pushing us to continue the irrational motion.
Unreasonably blood pressure goes up,
Stress levels crosses all bearable limits
In the attempt to attain
The Ultimate Happiness.
Finding comfort in people’s appreciation
Makes us proud and dependent.
Breaking us down badly
Into anxiety and depression
When people resort to silence!
Assigning happiness to a goal
Is acting like a fool
For postponing it is useless
When the urgent need of contentment
Is in the present!
All I realize is that Happiness
Is not a feeling but a state.
Trying to maintain it
Is not God’s will
But only our choice.
Success is only worth celebrating
If no sadness prevails.
Enjoying the journey
With an upward curve on our faces
And Crossing the hurdles
With unshakable determination
Will eventually open our minds
To accept the innumerable reasons
That give us joy
Along this jerky ride;
Thereby helping us to evolve
Into A blissful being!
