How does one live a happy life?

How does one live a happy life?

They say you need to be contented

To feel how it is to be happy.

But how can one feel such contentment

When you know out there you can do something better,

Deserve something better?

 

How does one live a happy life?

They say it is by shutting yourself away from negativity,

Think positive and always be positive.

But how can you feel the positivity

When in fact you are just all alone?

 

How does one live a happy life?

They say think of yourself less

And have more for others,

For giving brings an indescribable feeling of joy.

But what if nothing is left of you, will you still give more?

 

How does one live a happy life?

They say do what you love to do.

Be yourself and enjoy it.

Then you stop to re-think of it,

Is it really enough and worth it?

 

How does one live a happy life?

Who created the standards?

What is the exact method to happiness?

Why do we depend on what other say

When all this time, our happiness lies in every single one of us.

At a carnival or a waterpark, a concert or a street parade, all gives you a guarantee of a crowd.  But they could still be the lonliest places to be for the people who are living their nightmares instead of pursuing their dreams.  You always feel alone in a crowd if you are with a stranger.
A stranger should not only mean someone you don’t know, he or she could be someone you used to care about but not anymore.  He or she could be your best friend since forever who didn’t stay the same. Or a loved one, you would once give everything up, but can’t even look at them anymore.  Then again, I guess the word still fits- stranger.
We seldom realize or take notice how relationships just drift away, how you are forced by life to let something go. But sometimes, no matter how much you try to let something go, life just reels you back in.
Things that make you ponder whether your life is really yours. Force, you decide if you’ll resist or submit, either way it’s still there. Rules, written or not, whether you break it or live by it, rules are rules. Rights, acknowledged or stepped on, whether you respect it or not, it exists. Crimes, caught or done perfectly under the radar, whether against the laws of the people or the laws of nature, a crime is a crime.
Life pretty much gets you when you least expect it, just when you get comfortable in a place, you discover molds on the couch. By the time you finally let go of something or someone, a ghost suddenly shows up.  But the surprises always make life worth living. No matter how this tired old cliche may be, but it sure does come in handy, stay positive and live your life.  Today is the youngest you’ll ever be.
