Poem: Happiness!

Happiness!

What it’s not!


It’s not just a simple temporary occurrence. It’s not just that escape one made from ignorance. It’s not that trip one is taking on that old worn down and worn out concord air plane, your prize trip to Paris, France.

It’s not the peck on the on your cheeks you got, and are now suddenly you are pretending that your knees has become all limp, gone weak.

It doesn't amount to be that thing which breaks down with you, just about every other week. It’s not sometimes that’s acts humble today, and then tomorrow it’s the only thing that can speak.

It’s not the mailman at you door, where sometimes one is in a hurry to greet.

It’s not even a close to being, on of those old, stressed out, totally impossible fete.

It’s not about whether you are tidy and neat, trying to lure someone in your home, by advertising your brand new sets of sheets.

It’s not the type of food you have just begun to eat. It’s has nothing to do with the language that you speak.

It's not the influence of the school you attended. It's not the English classes or the grammar you comprehend.

It’s not a car that’s unique. It’s not the gifts or the treats. It's not the time you believe that in someone saying gazuntite"after you sneeze.

It's not I love you, after meeting for just a few, then on your knees. It’s not to the chapel with such ease. It's not the thousand good deeds. It's not alone and suddenly you are “Happy” just by sailing the high seas.



What it is though!

It is what you feel from way down, deep in your inner heart. Been always there with you even before you were born, that I believe is when one can surely say, right from the very start.

It is all that good, you were taught! It's the priceless blessings new arrival have always bought. It’s what the ones who were always great mothers have initially sought.

It's the reason great fathers have always fought. It's the life you have chosen for yourself. Not the life which “Life” went ahead and has chosen for you.

It's the endless support, love and appreciation your family will give. It’s the reason most people when given the choice, automatically choose to live.

It’s that genuine smile that stays glued on your face. Even when time seem bad, and it looks like you are now heading to your lonely grave!

It knows that The Most High God is the only one who truly loves. Take a look at the rain and the sun, at the moon and the stars check the constellations, pick up your telescope, and look for Jupiter and Mars. Carefully and you will see, even the sky they all will be looking down from above.

During our lifetime, they shine that love showing the beauty of God's never ending Love! It’s the assurance he gives each day and also each and every night, with no worry.

It’s the reason we continue to live, knowing that everything is just going to be alright. It’s happiness when you can look sincerely at

"You’re Mother!"

And say with all the loving feelings you possess, because now you have fully understood and you need to share this love. You can now see clearly, all those things she really had to do!

Now you can proudly say: Thank you dear Mother, I truly love you!

It’s then you have finally understood and you are now experiencing what is.

Happiness!

Bless:

And with sincere appreciation because , I know that even in love if there is no understanding it's finished before it started.

So now I know that you understand , if ever you do not see a message , you can look for sky, something has happened. I have been living to long to harbor selfishness, selfishness cannot be shared.

Appreciates you sincere comments.

Bless.

Sky9106, you don't have to have graduated to write great poetry. I felt a sort of 'rap' rhythm running through your writing which is interesting and a little sureal because of the layout of the text. The message though is strong. It is truly a pleasure to read such raw talent.

Sorry leni sands I got cut off, I was saying Jesus whom I Understand clearly, he was crucified and all he did was good. So I can handle anything.

I can see thorough people like I see through glass. Only I must speak truth, everyone Must know who they are, i can't be who I am because that's what some one say I am ! That's what they tried to do to Jesus.

So for me it's one love , and I know what love it. There is never a day when I will wake up angry at the world, and act grumpy, even if I was dying. I do hope you understand what I have said, because of your kind response and the mention of poetvix, whom I admire in the way that God loves and commands.

Sincerely thank you and hope you understand just a little more . Ask me what prose is , and though it may be simple, I will have to look it up . There is no shame or embarrassment because, I am one who learn to live not live to learn. I know writers who can't read and spell and they are big stars on this our planet.

I think what quite so many people do on here is to bring their ways to people rather that be honest the one way they can do it on here and that's to show it.

Live clean and let your works be see.

I again thank you for your kind way .

Bless.

Thank you leni Sands . And there just as I told poetvix , the world runs on simplicity and I will give two examples. Please4 bear in mind that nothing am saying to you and all else who may read as others do, is meant in any way to create anger or any strife , that will be a misdiagnosis.

I did not attend any college in the US or in any part of this world,but it's my world also,I reached the highest level of school in my birthplace after which , I felt more inclined to do for my family. Thank God especially my mother who is presently 91 and doing quite well! No fear with her and none with me because I speak to her all that I HAVE LEARNED and than any further education , and have no regrets. I Looked at the life of did not see Jesus MA and BA if he had them for his time used as weapons

Thanks sincerely phdast. Knowledge sincerely shared puts those that are sharing directly in line with the Most High

God. All I am doing here is sharing , I never signed up for anything than what I saw when I first joined was a blessed way to store the ways that I felt each day and since I have quite a few people who know me and I know quite ,this venue will one way or another benefit, so they won't be my problem. With that I will send quite a few people here and I did to read , they won't comment much , because of many reasons. But they are great people , if you may someday read Land of my birth. I will however e/mail you sometime today. Thanks for the vote of UP UP it reminds me of a fellow Hubber, whose works seem to be one of joy , as mine is meant to be.

Sincere thanks and Blessing.

Great piece of 'poetic prose' - well done! Not all poetry has to rhyme but rhythm is definitely here in your word, the rhythm of life, wisdom and a truly heartfelt message of 'common sense' for us all, as so clearly stated by poetvix. Thank you for writing this hub.

Why Sky, I think I may like your prose more than your poetry. :) This so very good, so very well thought out. And like Frank said, I like the rhythm and pattern to be found in moving from what Happiness is not, to what it truly is. Very encouraging, very uplifting and all you have expressed is so deeply true. Peace and blessings be upon you.

Voted UP, Up, Up and SHARING with others. :)

Thanks Rose. You are quite correct Rose , that's unconditional confirmation that you strongly believe, and that belief will protect and guide you, thus leading you through the parts of righteousness.

Have a wonderful day .

Give the Most High God the praise , Thank you every time. I almost forgot I saw your comment but got taken up with , I almost forget , but I believe me when your heart is solid, you mind and memory falls in place.

I am saying that I know I saw Cardisa's face so I went over the ones I passed.

As I am telling you this , something crossed my mind I have visited many places in your birthplace, my favorite was Ochi, because I had in those days a blast in the Intercontinental Hotel, there are so many beautiful places, always the people love it , that's all I heard in that hotel.

In my birthplace there are equal levels of beauty and during my short time there I have never heard one tourist say they did not have a great time, to us , what were they talking about , we were home .

I say this just to say that the Most High God have his reason for everything , it's only for us to start finding it.

I know of people who left there homes and after two days here got shot just walking the streets.

I like this by Bobby Mcpheren: Don't worry be happy.

Thanks Cardisa it's always a pleasure. Walk Good.

Yes Thank You Brethren Frank. These are some of the misconceptions that I have discovered a very long time ago in life , now I am old enough.

Sorry for this break I never really found the people I was looking for in life , because of the many roads that I have traveled , I have seen the dishonesty, the fake and the pretense, though I was fore warned by the Bible , the human weakness in me had me still want to look and feel for myself, and did I?

That's the reason I set off on this mission and if I die in this process, no regrets I am determined and I will leave all to stay on this mission. I have already left quite a lot, but I believe that everything worth while requires a sacrifice. My feathers are all that can get ruffled , but not my belief.

While here the truthful comments are all I expect , fro in my life I have went on mostly every High there was,and came out , to bear truthful witness to anyone , but I am after the kids. I was a kid too.

Now this piece is just a start of the amount of things that people take for happiness and a sample of what happiness truly entails . You think there are many more examples ? Millions But it all started with your life and my life, even if it was not around for all , it's around for the correct part ,the one where we are involved and can see clearly , now that some of the ugly clouds have been chased out , residues are still around but we have what it takes to defeat it. See those who think we must all speak the same or have no rights those are the residual effects , see those who are afraid to get their feet wet , will never learn to swim.

Thanks for always giving your best .

Give thanks and PRAISES.

This sounds more like a short story to me but very thought provoking. A message of never ending love.

Well sky you should have been the one to coin that phrase Love is a many splendored thing.. and and a bit of happiness to boot.. I like the way you contrasted this article first what happiness is not.. and then you end it with what happiness is..:) Frank

And may continue to keep you healthy and strong, and filled with his love.

You know I am happy that I have no issues with where my strength comes from . So I look to my source , and I must say that I do so with ease . I do things through a simple strategy at this time in my life . Another Human being, will never, ever be able to hurt me, that was for when I did not know and I have read in and out of the Bible and there is was all explained but it also presented a whole lot of questions, and I loved that to this day.

The way I went about it was direct because of my father he was as direct as the came.

He was not a lawyer but all his brothers was, and usually something rubs off from the family.

So as I always say I have answers, not questions about life , people , are a different story, I answer for me and I speak from my way. I quite clear !

I am surprised of only one things with you , that you haven't as yet written some books , and I can only guess, that it's because of the standards you set, I have written five ,and I guarantee you that when this final part to get them out there it already my type of ordinance waiting, do you know why ? Because I never lived selfish I shared with all that I met and they knew what I always loved . It don't need the standards of HP, it need me!

I know how this society works, I lived in it for thirty six years. To you I say, you are a great person any here I want to show you something .Take a look at this book, I will sent something to you by e/mail!

I am sincerely glad you like this poem and I am glad you see it the way you do, it was meant to do good.

Your way is great with me.

Bless.
