Human species of this planet are insanely fond of one word- Happiness. To correct myself, it’s not a word, it’s a state. All of us feel no need to define this state but we know when we feel it. Happiness is not just a positive mood. It’s an elusive state.
My grandfather always said- ” The more you give happiness, the more you recieve it for yourself.” When I try to make myself happy, I often fail. It may happen to many of us, we don’t have our own reasons of being happy. So we find our happiness in someone and something else. It was just the other day when one of my fellow blogger asked me about what my happiness lies in and I have a one liner as a reply.
“My happiness lies in selflessness, it lies in beginnings, it lies in care, it lies in unconditional love, it lies in humanity, it lies in myself. “ I just have to say that if you find yourself happy while ignoring someone, hurting someone, hating someone, this happiness is very temporary and will soon be replaced with guilt and emptiness.
My mother’s smile, my father’s laughter, my grandmother’s humor, my sibling’s support, my grandfather’s memories, my friend’s success, old photographs, deep conversations, helping people, talking to children, it makes me feel ecstatic.
When you step out you should see the children playing merrily, the tress swirling to the tune of wind, the flowers calling for praises, the birds enjoying their freedom, the animals loving their young ones, the grass under your feet, the first rain and so many more. Yes! The exact same curve on your face, the same spirit in your heart after reading this is called happiness.
This is a fantastic poem by my favorite person on WordPress.ujjwalrealblogAnd I am sure he is going to be your favorite as well after you give it a read. Mr poet can’t thank you enough for investing your precious time and thoughts for me! I am so grateful! ☺️
When the clock struck the midnight hour
I could not resist gazing at the ceiling
What is ‘happiness’ all about?What’s that feeling?
Being azured by the moonlight and the star
Oh!It was all that counted for the ocean,it’s ‘happiness’so far
The kid ran towards his father
Pushed him back,hung on his neck
Oh!It was all that counted for the father,his ‘happiness’ rather
Meanwhile I admired a mother feeding her child
Her eyes glittering with love,the baby lips making a curve
Oh!It was all that counted for the mother,her ‘happiness’ knew no limits,travelled miles farther
Not only we human possesse feelings
My perception inverted,at the sight of cow fostering her baby
Oh!It was all that counted for the cow,her ‘happiness’
So motherly lovely
What brought me to the utmost surprise
A beggar folding hands for every penny that he was ‘prized’
Oh!It was all that counted for the beggar,his ‘happiness’ left me mesmerised
The farmer struggling on every inch of his land
He looked at the sky for every single drop,nourishing his soil and the sand
Oh!It was all that counted for the farmer,his ‘happiness’ needs no music or band
My eyes took a glimpse over a soldier waiving his country’s flag
He did not fear the guns,bullets,mortars or the weather
Oh!It was all that counted for the soldier,his ‘happiness’ could not be encaged in a bag
Yet another imagery sent a chill down my spine
A man fighting death did not deliver an iota of fear
Oh!It was all that counted for the man,his ‘happiness’ lay inside somewhere in the rear
Now that I woke to a new day
The bright sunrays illuminated my room,there was no dismay
Smiling modestly at the ‘dream’,all the queries answered,what more to say?
Oh!The happiness cannot be described in a common way
