The Key to Happiness

by yogi73   Oct 8, 2018

Who and What
it will take
to change the directions of my life
is my decision to make

Now do I walk about
with the happiness & love
as if I shouldn't be here?
Do we know what has
just happened?

We have searched and found little
but more questions

Oh! The held and bitter
resentments that clotted
my brain. What
was the cloud where
I Lived and how did I get
there? Have I descended?

I have been with those and
all that i have loved most.
They have surrounded me.
They wait and
are waiting for me to heal.

I have passed and I have failed.
Life forces us to try
Until we decided to give up.
After that there is nothing

Oh! The world is calling
with its adventures and joys and pains

    The title leads the,reader away from what
    the reader might have thought it would be.
    The start was inviting but the soft tone of
    the words carry a weight of sadness and
    pain...touching write with something for
    the reader to ponder about...

    A deep piece that reeks of pain and the destruction of self wrought about by self. A thought provoking piece that I needed to read several times. The title "A key to Happiness" at first gives the impression of a poem that will be light and provide a key to happiness but the poem itself reveals a more darker view. A tantalising piece that is somewhat haunting. At the end of it all happiness is a state of mind that fills the moments between joy and pain. Milly x
