To Find Happiness

I think maybe a bit dour…

To Find Happiness
by Michael Romani

I have been fighting to survive
From the day I was born
Struggling just to stay alive
To find happiness and not be forlorn

I have walked each step in pain
Wearing a mask of happiness
Closely guarded to the point of being thought vain
Wishing for even one moment of bliss

I suppose this is my cross to bear
And that worse things have happened to some
Like not surviving or finding any reason to care
Or, walking through life oblivious or numb

Instead my lot has been to touch on happiness
Just to see it destroyed or soon gone
Mostly by my fault and replaced with emptiness
Yet, still the will to press on and on

Telling myself it's just around the bend
And that it's my struggle to move forward
Until I can keep myself anchored and depend
On God, pressing onward, hoping it's toward
               ...Happiness
