The Gravity of the Situation

The Gravity of the Situation

Written by Lilith Raymour

No one owes you happiness
You have to find it
Prowl for it
Some days that’s all it takes
to cast a smile on your face

Happiness plays hide and seek
That’s part of the adventure
The challenge
The joy

Some days
You’re the Road Runner
Some days the Coyote
And no day
No matter what the planning
Is “safe…” from hard landings

The darkest days
Can provide mirth
If only in the mind
“Seek and ye shall find”

For happiness hides
Under the floorboards
Or out
of your bed
On top of the house
Occasionally must be fed

Too many people starve happiness
Then wonder why it dies

Beep, beep
