The responsibility to be happy and content

Lies totally on my own shoulders, that I know

Why then is the temptation to look to others

To provide this exalted feeling and ally my fears

Can the feeling of being happy and content come

From the words and gestures of those you love

Or is this a crutch that we lean on to justify the

Inability in our own minds to realize the truth

A treasure that can never be bought or borrowed

The rarity that is embedded deep in my own soul

That can only be found by digging deep into the

Recesses of my consciousness and exploring it

Look for that kernel of abstract idea that brings

The exploding joy, the exuberant euphoria that

I need to find and experience it in all its glory

So be ready to bear this responsibility and smile

Your daily word prompt ;
