Happiness

It comes our way
when we least expect.
And also leaves,
the way it comes.

We look for it in — all
the wrong places;
not knowing what
it truly means.

In darkest nights it comes
but is rarely seen because we -
forget to look up when
our heads are hanging down.

On the last third of the night
when we wake up to prostrate -
it is only then will we
feel peace and at ease.

Because it’s only when our heart
is close to its Creator -
it's when we can truly be
free, and happy.
