Road To Happiness

Road To Happiness

A Poem by Undying Glory

Just another day at the park...

Road To Happiness

Step by step
Pace by pace
Walking along that long, undulating road
Of peace, serenity and calm, 
My parents by my side as we walk. 

The soft scent of the deep sea air
So sweetly intoxicating our hearts and souls
The soft rays of the distant, dying sun
Reflected off the sparkling, rippling seas
Shining more brilliantly than all the diamonds of the world
So gently and deeply infiltrating our senses
The soft call of the nearby rain trees
So delicately swaying in the endless evening wind
As they shroud the road in mystery and deep intrigue. 

One by one, I watch my problems softly melt away
So like the ephemeral words carved into the shifting sands
Washed into the ever-flowing waters of life,
And soon they are all no more. 

Look around you. 
Look at those laughing and playing with friends and family. 
Look at those watching the wonders of nature
That no postcard could ever capture truly. 

Isn't it strange how some own much wealth and riches
Many branded goods and fancy cars
More than we could ever imagine
Yet happiness still eludes them?
And yet those who have so little
But are contented with all that they have
And they possess all the happiness in the world?

Look around you. 
Do you not see the beauty and joy
In all the simple things around us?

Do you not feel happy and thankful now?

Great wisdom in your words. Wealth don't make a person happy. At the end of a life the good deeds and gifts of love will make you feel and know peace. Last line is the question we all need to ask. Are we on the right path? A outstanding poem with wisdom and logic.

wealth makes temporary happiness great poem!

So very true. People tend to believe that material things can bring happiness, but the secrets to happiness are scattered all around us in the simple (and free) pleasures the world offers. Very nicely written.

Insist a little less on the didactic purpose - leave it implied rather than stated.
that way, the reader will absorb it from your poem without feeling preached to.

Really lovely! I needed this. I have problems right now with school and a friend. Thanks for reminding me that I need to be thankful for what I have though.

Very descriptive, which is very very good. It gives your reader a mental image and lets them feel the emotion your trying to write. Amazing poem, good message. Great job... again(:

Sometimes, we miss all of it because of the stress of daily life, never hurts to stop and look around ourselves! And its always beautiful to be reminded of how much beauty we miss!
This is beautiful! xx
