Key to Happiness

by Alex Penuelas   Mar 21, 2017


The key to happiness
Is not a hard thing
To uncover.

Many people assume that
Happiness is uncovered
By finding the right person,
Or getting the right job,
Or obtaining that degree
That you always wanted.

Yes, all of these things
Do create a sense of happiness,
and they do maintain you happy
For a good while.

But eventually,
All external things
Fade away under
the sifting sands of
Time.

There is one way
That you can achieve
Eternal happiness.

And that is by
Drastically lowering
Your expectations.
.
.
.
.
Nah, you gotta go
Lower than that...
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
Lower still....
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
You're almost there man
Keep pushing...
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
Just a little bit more...
.
.
.
.
.
There ya go.

    I agree with Brenda and I love the lay out. It gives the poem that special thing it needs, and a tint of humor.
