How Do We Find Happiness?

Filed under: Poetry — migueltio @ 3:31 pm

We do so many
wonderful things
in life from
day to day.

Just rising up
each morning casts
a new light past
yesterday.

Whatever our life
amounts to
we generally do
what we like.

But no matter the
lights that shine
we can still have
demons inside.

Somewhere within us
our demons reside
threatening our lights
eroding our pride.

How can we channel
that darkness that
lives and occasionally
shows its face?

Every little detail
every little moment
every little wish
every little prayer
ALL are lights
of happiness
of which we MUST
always be aware.

We must find a way
to keep light way up
high and darkness
way down there.

~Miguel
