did you know happiness is a summation
did you know that happiness is always at risk
but it still is an exercise, a vocation?
of asserting your own existence to your being,
the one who is lost in a quagmire of possibilities
you can't express happiness in a piece of paper
but it is tangible
seen in your actions
and the exhaustion that follows.
did you know about happiness secretly?
a secret you wouldn't let go of,
you will rather deny all knowledge,
gently laugh over the prospect
of being called a cynic
than admitting that you
have been happy
all this while.
