    I just want to be happy

    Is that so much to ask?
    Just happy when I wake up
    Happy when I go to bed
    But happiness
    True happiness
    Seems to elude me
    Is it because I’m
    Not looking
    In the right
    Places?
    Or is true happiness
    Only found within?
    Does true happiness
    Even exist?
    Was I wrong to think
    That YOU could
    That YOU would
    Make me happy?
    Was I wrong to put so much
    Faith and trust in
    YOUR ability to make me
    Happy?
    Because sometimes your words
    Make me unhappy
    Your actions
    Make me unhappy
    Because what if you leave me?
    Or
    What if the **** just doesn’t
    Work out?
    Am I doomed then to be
    Forever unhappy
    Until the next brotha comes along
    For me to put more
    Faith and trust in
    His ability to make me
    Happy?
    Or should I just figure out
    WHAT makes me
    Instead of
    WHO makes me
    Happy?
    Isn’t that the true question
    The real quest
    The real goal
    To find what makes me happy?
    Maybe happiness can’t
    Be found in another person
    But rather in
    MYSELF
    By fulfilling
    MY needs
    MY desires
    MY wants
    MY dreams
    And asking
    MY creator
    To lead me along the way

    Then will I be happy?

    you answered your own question

    with those last 8 lines
    happiness does come from within
    if you rely on outside forces to make you happy it's only temporary
    you have make you style happy
    keep it simple
    you'll be alright
    do what makes you feel good
    try different but it all starts with you

    NappyG,

    I agree with both $R and So'Ja - happiness ultimately is you...

    Insightful piece!
