I’ll be happy in the right relationship

It depends

I’ll be happy in the right job

It depends

I’ll be happy when I live in the right house

It depends

I’ll be happy when I have enough friends

It depends

I’ll be happy when I win the lottery

It depends

I’ll be happy when I’m happy

It depends

 

Happiness is illusory

Dependent on nothing

Independent of everything

It comes, it goes

Can’t hold onto it

Like grasping water

Slipping through my fingers

Soon they are dry

Just in time to be drenched again

Someday maybe

I will hold everything

With an open hand

Trusting and grateful

That nothing lasts forever
