in all you do, find joy, instead of happiness.
pleasure is always fleeting.
desire won’t last.
bliss, they say, is for the ignorant
but, the wise will wait for wisdom . . .
. . . because, knowledge is power, is it not?
and, with it comes control,
to an extent, does it not?
and, since when does control have a limit?
if you learn how to gain
the strength to feel and redirect . . .
to maintain, to take control,
to consistently be able to
find the happiness again . . .
. . . see, happiness is a feeling;
joy is an emotion.
a feeling is external;
emotion is within.
a feeling comes to you,
while emotion comes from you.
so, essentially, in the mean time,
find the good to overcome.
persist through pressure
find the prize . . .
in all you do, find joy, not happiness.
pleasure is always fleeting
and, desire never lasts.
bliss, just know, is reserved for ignorance,
but, the wise will wait for wisdom.
