Happiness (So Dangerous)

Posted by | March 9, 2014 | Film/Video, Poetry | No Comments

Happiness is so dangerous…because what happens when it stops?

 

It can hit you like a car crash or a face smash

And you drop off a cliff

Into an abyss

A dark well of depression

Can just set in

Like a fog or a mist

Because you now know what youve missed

You’ve gone from pure bliss

To being pissed

Because I remember those times

When I reached heights unimagined

Like I’d never believed

Emotionally on the top of Mount Kilimanjaro … Feeling the breeze

Walks along sandy beaches

Looking out at sunsets and the beautiful seas

But those moments have a flip side

The come down

And it’s hard to stay balanced

And resist the poisoned chalice

When the pendulums swinging

And your holding on for dear life

You only care that your winning

You have all your ducks in a row

Keep hitting free throw after free throw

Everything’s unlimited

When your convinced

Your an unstoppable force

You can walk on water

Your the boss

And you never have to count the cost

Of a loss

 

Happiness can be so dangerous…because what happens when it stops?

 

For a moment

Life is everything life could want to be

It’s grinning from ear to ear

It’s skipping through forests far and near

It’s joy unparalleled its days that never end

It’s connections so heartfelt

That make your heart melt

Before reality hits

And you start to think

Maybe it’s better not to get so caught up in this

But then you’d never experience the joys and the ups of the ups

They can be ever so fleeting

and i never want to look at the world in a defeating way

Deflating times

Delay your life lines

Drawn out in parallels

Mountains valleys crossed

Love won and lost

That is what creates the human being

That you are seeing in front of you

The seething

Emotional volcano spews forth

Rattled, reminiscent reticent, well all the Arrrgghss you can imagine

Living, breathing, wishing, hoping, the next time it’s more stable

Because Happiness isn’t a fable told in stories or books

It’s real, it exists, it’s bliss, it’s simplicity, it’s trust and understanding

Happiness is a beautiful part of life however it looks

It can be jaded mass created greatness..subtle or just pure elation but in the end

The most important thing to remember

It’s ultimately you who creates it

And like the salt

Of the earth

It has worth

And when it’s birthed

I hope this contagious infectious happiness disease is something you find

I just need to remember…not to get so caught up next time.

 

Ive Always had a devotion to happiness

But it’s an unstable emotion

It’s an intoxicating potion

An elixir to fix ya

It can cure all your ails

Once it sets sail

And you fail

It’s time to bail

Because The higher you reach the greater you fall

And they say falls make you stronger but sometimes they just don’t.

 

Is it better to feel nothing than happiness and sadness

Can’t wipe the smile of your face
