Searching for Happiness

Why do we look to others
for our happiness?
It is not a gift
someone else can bestow
or for that matter
take away.

Happiness, serenity, joy
cannot be bought at Walmart
nor traded with good deeds.
Do we even know what
true happiness is
what it feels like
to be at peace with all?

It is not something one
can seek for it is a way
of being that pours forth
from within.
Serenity is a knowing
a quiet reassurance
that weathers all storms
a connection to the Divine
that can never be broken.
Serenity, joy comes from Grace
from knowing that
there is only this
precious moment of how
all is connected
all is one
forever, amen.
