Decoding Happiness : #Voyage

pursuit-of-happiness-quotes-6

I wanted to be happy always,
I asked them, how?

Pass your high school with 90+ grades,
Was what they said..

I did that, very well indeed,
My quest for happiness, still knew no end..

I wanted to be soar the skies always,
I asked them, how?

Graduate with a gold medal,
Was what they said..

I did that, very well indeed,
My quest for the skies, still knew no end..

I wanted to be beautiful always,
I asked them, how?

Nail the job you dream of and shop in the finest malls,
Was what they said..

I did that, very well indeed,
The joy was like a candle, eventually melted away..

I wanted to know happiness always,
But this time, I asked not them..

I asked my heart indeed,
And went on a voyage to meet happiness..

I sailed through the storms and walked through the plateaus,
Swum through the rivers and rested beneath the stars..

Thirsty amidst the dessert heat, I kept chasing,
Mirage after mirage, the quest never ended..

I fought the pirates and danced with the daffodils,
I got lost in the caves and found treasure indeed..
