Happiness seems to be a fleeting thing as of late
The closer I get to it the further it seems to move away
I know you can't find it in others
And it rarely, if ever, can be found in tangible
It's a right we all have
But many seldom find
In my case
It's a longing and loneliness that haunts my existence
That nothing seems to distill or quench
I hunger for things I have to wait for
I thirst for a time in my life when I'm completely free
of the past's pull and society's bite
I'm yearning for something I think is simple
I've got a history of high expectations and asking for
And it's even surprising to me when the conditions
But this is simple in a conventional and spiritual sense
Nothing too complex
(or so it seems)
I guess I'll just have to dig a little deeper
Look inside a little longer
Till I find all that adds up to being
Now playing: Annie Lennox - Primitive
Trust me, you'll find you are worth the long search. Keep digging.
God Bless You
Wow...that can relate to me as well. Everytime you think you find it, it goes away.
Very nice poem.
Wow man, that was really good. I certainly understand what you mean.
I think you're well on your way to finding happiness. Keep on man!
