Pursuit of Happiness
By: SeemsPoetic
Locked inside 

Feeling left out

Living life but life's locked out

Hopes and dreams 

Love and laughter

Here for moments then gone so long right after

Helpless thoughts 

Within a crowded home

Happiness hides in the basement 

While sadness steals the show

Motivation lacks as madness lapses 

Running laps around bad habits

Wasting time on time to go’s

Stick around but just for show

No peace of mind until we're lavished 

Gone out of mine to find the meaning but still can't grasp it

They say to live your life as if you're dying

Every second counts yet life's untimely 

But what's the point when living blindly 

Futures fate

The past's behind me

Took a chance

But lifes' denied me 

Lost my faith

Got it back

By a thread

About to snap

Here I sit

Trying to stand

Fight the demons

Be a man

Lost in the ocean

Cant find land

Life's a struggle 

No upper hand

Empty notions

Glass half full

Lost my way

So long ago

Now im caged

Stuck in a hole

Fleeting strength 

The depth just grows

I  must be willing

This I know

Climb back up

However slow

Do not wait

Get up and go

Times against me

Stop saying no

Afraid of heights

But feeling low

Use all my might

Trudge through the snow

I will not stop

Until I'm happy 

Until I’m whole

I will not stop

I  w i l l  n o t  s t o p

Until I reach my goals

This is amazing. I like how you said that even though people say we should live like we're dying that doesn't mean we should rush in blindly. The way this story built up it was captivating and powerful.
