A Chapter by Joshua777

Written Fall 2015 | Where is happiness found?


Happiness is everywhere you look,

No its not!

Well, look closer,

I still don’t see it!

Hah, the sadness bogs your vision,

I am sad, but I am not blind.


You don’t understand,

No, I don’t.

You lack happiness, and so you are blinded,

So, where is it, where is the happiness!

Look deeper, look deep within yourself,

Where is it?


In the maw of your heart.


Happiness is like the sun,

And sadness are the clouds,

The sadness triumphs,

So the shine won’t reach out.


Now, you understand,

Yes, but how do I remove the fog?

It is not easy, you know why,

You can’t touch fog.

No, it takes much more work,

Than being sad?



Happiness is a powerful force, with infinite potential.


Happiness is not easy to attain,

It needs much more work,

Much more than being glum,

Because it takes ambition, willpower

And most importantly, it takes HEART.

With happiness,

You have influence,

To help other lives.

With happiness

You have resistance,

To defy negativity in the world.


And with happiness

You break the clouds,

Break free from the aerial prison,

And shine, shine your light,

Shining positivity to the rest of the world.


You understand now,

Yes, it all makes sense.

But of course, happiness begins with two,

What do you mean?

You, broke the clouds,

I started writing poetry at 14 inside an ‘Intro to Poetry’ class which turned out to be less fun because of the restraints of the assignments, so poetry fell away from me soon after. A .. more..
