True Happiness

This poem speaks of true happiness which has nothing to do with money as money cannot buy happiness.

Poor or rich, all have their battles to deal with.

How much money is sufficient,
For one to be happy and glad,
This question is very ancient,
So has every seeker said.

Poor, middle class, rich or richer,
All have their battles to fight,
No matter what you use to cover,
You know your fears, Right ?

True Happiness lies in sharing and selflessness.

We have but a moment at a time
To live and be happy in,
You are poor if don’t share and give,
Enjoy together, laugh and grin.

All riches together cannot make,
Your present moment happy or sad,
From false ego, if you break,
With what you have, you are always glad.

If you love to live and live to love, you are blessed.

If you love your sweet woman,
And love to climb the mountain,
If you enjoy your drink, cheap or costly,
And never boast, if you are wealthy,
If you love a person for his virtue,
Without guessing cost of his shoe,
If you can drop your worries,
That you morbid mind carries,
At the mesmerizing sight,
Of an azure sky bright,
If you fill the present moment,
The only treasure you possess,
With selfless love and its scent,
You are the happiest and the blessed !

Black just lovely
as Smiths work with fire
and the darkness becomes white ,
when the furnace is opened hence BLACK

No problems, i ain't much of a poet ,
even though i have composed only 7000 poems May God bless wikinut and triond and the lady
for small mercies
i enjoy now reading you all and drop a line here and there ,
as i have no means of communication else ,thanks

Life is always colorful
More so in the darkness,
Which is black
Under the spread of sheets when love is packed
