Pursuit

 

I search for happiness knowing it exists.

Days pass without success.

This doesn't cause me to lose hope.

I continue to pursue happiness. 

 

Finally my heart is filled.

Everything I seek is finally found.

Tears do not exist and smiles take over.

I continue to pursue happiness.

 

Wait, no, where did you go?

We fell in love and then you left.

You came back but then they ripped you away.

I continue to pursue happiness. 

 

The days we share I'm happy.

The days you're absent I cry.

Why can't I be happy every day?

I continue to pursue happiness.

 

They say we have the right to pursue happiness. 

But they don't tell us that that's all it is. A pursuit.

Happiness cannot be achieved. Only pursued.

I continue to pursue happiness.

 

I continue to pursue you.
