The Pursuit of Happiness

what makes you happy?
what makes you smile?
what sends that chill up your spine?
The beauty of nature?
the sound of the band?
or finding that perfect rhyme?
The sound of the ocean?
The wind in your hair?
that touch of emotion?
when she gives you that stare


they say we have the right
and we all are in pursuit
which path will be delight?
where will you find your truth?

or do you need the adrenaline?
when you ski down that hill
when you jump off that cliff
just for the thrill
or maybe the site of a masterpiece
or to hear a composition
to acheive something you never have
to win a competition


acquiring knowledge?
solving the puzzle of life?
or helping others
with their struggles
alleviating their strife?
