Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness…
It’s our right.
How much does the pursuit of happiness cost?
Is it found in a mall,
In a thrift store, or a horse stall?
Does it result in a mountain of clothes on your closet floor
Or moments in the sun, fluffy dog at your feet on the floor?
Is it day after day working hard and staying late
Pursuing the money, or….is it the simple fun you can create?
I find that my stuff starts collecting dust
One thing hides another, and I forget what the motive was.
Maybe happiness is to be minimalist and free
To enjoy a given moment and just
I hope to find the answer to this.
I’ll make sure to let you know
If I find true bliss.
