It's a million dollar industry
Selling this thing called happiness.
Twenty-five books on the bestseller list
So it's of great interest to all of us.
Some say you are hard wired to be happy,
Others say it can be taught.
Your environment can affect your mood
But a higher purpose must also be sought.
Happy people have better habits
They nurture their body, mind and soul.
Those always stressed or filled with fear
Will never reach the happiness goal.
But to chase after happiness is an elusive thing
For seeking happiness alone is not the key.
But to live a life with meaning and purpose
Then happy you're bound to be.
