This is a poem I spat out. In fact, I never write a poem unless I write four or more of them in quick succession. That explains why some of them are rubbish and deserve to be thrown in the dumpster along with stories I wrote four years ago. I can’t seem to find the gumption to toss them, though.


Happiness is not for every day.
Happiness is not for fun or play.
Happiness is for special occasions.


Happiness is not to be handed to you.
Happiness is to be sought and earned by you.
Happiness is a reward.


Happiness is not for those who are of pleasure or jollity.
Happiness is for those with a certain quality.
Happiness is for the determined.


Happiness is love sublime.
Happiness is not all mine.
Happiness is to be shared.


Happiness is to be taken with care.
Happiness is not to be won with a dare.
Happiness is for the worthy.


Happiness is yours and mine.
Happiness is love divine.
Happiness does not involve a tear.


Your happiness is my happiness, my dear.
