What is happiness and joy

It is having shiny new clothes

Or the latest electronic widget

Or any material chattels


To me, yes once it was

I would spend to have my instance boost

My fix of happiness and joy

But it was a deceiver and a fraud


It tempted me with a high

But soon as it arrived it said goodbye


Now my personal possessions are few

I learnt that happiness and joy

Come from inside

And not from any external lie


Internal highs don’t say goodbye as soon as they arrive

Instead they help us to thrive
