Happiness

You can’t buy happiness

(most of you already knew that).

You can’t borrow it–even on

a short term loan.

Feeling good has to come

from within.  It costs nothing,

you can even give it away

sometimes packaged in humor

or compliments

but the other person (or animal)

has to receive it, accept it.

So many things in this world.

So many friends.

They can all allow you to choose

happiness

but you have to see it

that way

as anything else is

pretty much

out and out

insanity.  The easy way

we take when taking

responsibility for our own

feelings seems like too much

of an effort.
