pursuit of happiness

Pursuit of Happiness

Even the greatest falter.

The most elite fail to meet

the expectations and stat quo.

Every one of us is fallible.

There is no escaping

the prospect of failure.

But those who transcend

beyond the limitation,

are those who become legend.

Every one who has proven

themselves worthy of

mention in the encyclopedia

has weathered the heights,

and  mastered their art. 

Therefore, it makes sense

to find your passion and,

transcend any before you

in the mind field.

Do not settle for the norm.

Instead, seek to leave a dent

In the enormity of time,

that forces all generations to

to believe in one single fact.

That all humans attest to the

blatantly obvious fact that all we

want is to be happy.

2010-2012 Poems

We're just two-hour drive apart...
Do you deserve to have the 'nth' chance?
If we have another fresh start,
Will it be another 'nth' nuisance?

I've come this far
To be 'alright'...
The wounds you've left,
Turned into scars.

Would it be too much,
Is it beyond foolishness?
To risk the 'nth' time,
In pursuit of happiness?
