Deciding To Achieve Happiness - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Deciding to achieve happiness effectively,
Without the stress from others to get...
As a special delivery to accept.
Don't do it and refuse.
And knowing the doing of this,
Is success.

Anyone believing,
A success like this can be demanded...
Will never experience a peace of mind,
As if to pursue it is cheaply to get...
At a flea market to uncover a bargain.
Searching for bargains like this is nearly hopeless.

Happiness with a peace of mind deserved,
Is a process that has to be experienced and earned.
Not demanded.
And one one feels the beginning of this process,
Starting to heal with a calmness revealed...
An acceptance of one's success has arrived.
