Chasing Happiness

Looking everywhere
Ever in a race
Lifting rocks and boulders
In a never ending haste.

Ever in a quest
To seize the impossible
Man's greatest fault
Chasing happiness.

Friends, cafes, shared giggles
Books, music, paint
Family, strangers, a stray or a pet
Hidden in the mundane.

Stop. Take a pause;
take a breath.
If you'd only look
Happiness is all around.
