In Pursuit of Happiness
I traveled miles around in search of pleasure.
Happiness I wanted but the result was just a teaser.
I wrote poems and got appreciated.
Happiness I got but the next moment it turned belated.
I stared at my prizes with which I was glorified.
My heart reckoned nothing and my outfit just smiled.
“Worldly matter won’t build up the happiness path” I guessed.
“Catch up the smile of all the innocent ones” my heart addressed.
And so I began the voyage in pursuit of happiness.
I assisted, supported, helped others making nobody its witness.
The smile of those who were bullied and banged up.
Swept away my euphoria from nowhere to top.
The pleasure shared by separated ones after getting together.
Banged my all frustrated cells and finally made me happy altogether.
