Finding the True Meaning of Happiness

It's not found on a plastic card

Nor on your wallet

It's not found on the luxuries of life

Nor on how much salary you get



It's not found on the praise

It's not found on the opinion of others

It's not found on what they think of you

So why bother?



Happiness is found underneath

The every corner of your soul

On your pure heart laid to people you love

And the things that make you whole



It is found on the true kind deed

And on the unselfish things you’ve done

It is found on the help you extend

On every poor and unfortunate man



It is found on a kind word

And a thoughtful sweet act

It is found on the care

As well as on other's love



Happiness comes from within you

So complain less and cherish life more

We cannot change the past

But we can still shape our future



Be grateful, be thankful

Of all the things that you have

Be contented, be satisfied

Be someone who can give a love



Happiness is not a chance

Rather it is your choice

So do what makes you happy

And make them hear your voice



Happiness can only be felt

It is not seen nor you can touch

Like a love that God gave us

From the heaven’s above

The true meaning of happiness comes from within there is nothing or no one in this world can make one happy if the individual is not happy from within then there is no real happiness I so agree with this poem thanks

unknownspy.....So basically what you are saying is our " Happiness" in this world is our responsibility...stop looking for others to make you happy...take responsibility for ourselves..if others respond " great " if not move on...we need to STOP looking for approval from others, like comments on hubs....we wrote it , cause we felt it...does it matter if others accept our words/thoughts..NO...loved you hub..kudos well done !!!

This is such a humble and caring poem and so true. What would make this world even a better place and help care even more: it is if we could help those that need help just like the Amish people do. We all could do things for each other instead of each one working for money then the world would be much happier in my opinion.
