Those Who Seek Happiness


If the happiness is hidden,
in the brackets of human,
We may see the smiling human,
admiring their go down,
Where they have hunted
and kept all those hearts,
Cannibalistic feast,
drowned in the fantastic spirits,
But we see the frowned faces,
trembling in fear
On the canopy
of the dream fantasies,
With no added flavor,
they don’t know to love,
As the love is believed
to be bottled up in the shelves.
always left there for the revisit,
as it may not accompany us to be peaceful.

    when pleasure brook flows and went down to be deep. peace resides within mind to heart in rhythm /those in search of this why happiness and peace related /not related. those who seek happiness for them many ways /finally you wrote ma'am / it may not accompany us to be peaceful.....very nice poem. enjoyed mentally with the chain of heart (Report) Reply
