Everybody, everywhere
seeds happiness, it’s true,
But finding it and keeping it
seems difficult to do.
Difficult because we think
that happiness is found
Only in the places where
wealth and fame abound –
And so we go on searching
In “palaces of pleasure”
Seeking recognition
and monetary treasure.
Unaware that happiness
is just a “state of mind”
Within the reach of everyone
who takes time to be kind
For in making others happy
we will be happy, too.
For the happiness you give away
returns to “shine on you.”
