What Is Happiness

What Is Happiness short poem

Uploaded by Carmen Shantipriya

What is happiness if I don’t feel
the plants feeding through my roots
and the blooming smile on my lips
being their blossom’s smile?

What is happiness if I don’t feel
the wings of my soul being
the bird’s, flying in high, wings
and its song is the song of my heart?

What is happiness if I don’t feel
being at home in every heart,
and anyone feels not at home
when is greeted into mine?

What is happiness if I don’t feel
my wholeness through everything,
if I don’t share pieces of my soul
if I don’t understand that is no time to lose,
if I don’t treasure this precious human birth?
