World is mine


on my way
back from the cemetry,
crying and feeling desolate,
i guess that’s when it began;

haunting me to this day,
i curse myself and wonder
why i stopped when
others did not;

through the wind and the rain,
in a world that i long to be in,
day in and day out,
used and thrown away;

if only we could make a life
of what we dream,
there would be no heaven
and no need for (a separate) hell;

a fragile soul caught in the hands of time
dying a little everyday
i know a change is gonna come
there’s a place i am going to
as i keep chiseling away
to carve out a life that is mine
i find that place is right here
within me;

this one is riddled with multiple meanings. each stanza can and does mean a lot of things. i started writing this with 2 central themes, but it does extend to a whole lot of various other things.

You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life. – Albert Camus

Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful. – Albert Schweitzer

Happiness belongs to the self-sufficient. – Aristotle

Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude. – Denis Waitley

The foolish man seeks happiness in the distance, the wise grows it under his feet. – James Oppenheim
