Too many of us,

crave the appraisal

and accolade

from people whose opinions

don’t matter.

Too many of us,

confuse happiness with luxury

with a sense of being “above”,

when true happiness

lies only within.

Too many of us,

give up our sanity

to impress others,

to chase tangible things

as substitutes.

Too many of us,

want to live in boxes;

crafted by the world

so that we can buy more

from online shopping.

Too many of us,

don’t know what happiness is.

But simply the illusion

of it.
