“Know your own happiness.” — Jane Austen
Happiness is relative
something you can’t get generic,
over the counter at your local drugstore.
it’s something personal
because it’s always one step ahead
just around the corner
the light at the end of the tunnel.
Happiness is the friend that’s always late
and to be honest, a little self important.
Sometimes you think this is it:
the moment that i’m finally going to be happy.
And that when you realize
it’s a scam,
you can’t chase happiness.
But that’s the secret.
You can’t chase happiness.
Happiness it seems, finds you
in the most unexpected of places
But when it does
it’s a beautiful thing
and in that moment you’re so glad
that happiness isn’t just some generic thing.
