Finding Happiness?

I couldn’t find my happiness
It wasn’t in its place
Not here
Nor there
It’d disappeared
Or hadn’t ever been…
“I’ll find it yet!” I said
I swore
Then sat in Thinker pose
-Although I checked behind
I couldn’t find my happiness
I found my sock.



Pretty sure John influenced this one.

  1. I’ve reread this fun little piece and am honoured by your references; yes I do spot me in this poem but you’ve put your own twist on it; the aussie band, Powderfinger, made an iconic hit on ‘My Happiness’: it’s a great topic

  2. The bible gives us sure advice on how to truly be happy physically, mentally and spiritually.❤️

    Mathew 5:3:-Happy are those conscious of their spiritual need, since the Kingdom of the heavens belongs to them.

    Psalms 1:1-Happy is the man who does not walk according to the advice of the wicked And does not stand on the path of sinners And does not sit in the seat of scoffers.

    Mathew 5:5-Happy are the mild-tempered, since they will inherit the earth.
