WHAT DOES HAPPINESS LOOK LIKE?


WHAT DOES HAPPINESS LOOK LIKE?

I've never been a happy person.
More of a serious person.
So what does happiness look like?
Is it the smile on a mother's face?
Is it the laughter of a toddler?
Is it the loving look of a lover?
Look around you.
Do people really look happy?
Or do they look preoccupied?
Maybe a little impatient or hurried?
Do people even look happy at a party?
Some may be smiling.
Some may be off to the side, watching.
If you supply some liquor,
Then you might see some happiness.
So who is happy?
My dog rubbing his back across the rug
Is the epitome of true happiness.
Animals have cornered the market on happiness.
They are content to be alive.
We should learn from them.
