English Poetry

When one has a grudge against the whole world,
who am I to make things fair and right.
Sometimes one can just let it be and let go,
and wait for the way to make it bright.

Too grumpy and all grudges,
that the face has become so.
I pity thy self and pray,
and wonder at your stage of play.

You’ve forgotten to be thankful,
to complain has become thy chore.
Aged so though by years so youthful,
in trying to to settle the imaginative score.

I can see it and sense it all,
the very reason of your loneliness and fall.
Brought about by yourself,
and by being your own help.

Happiness lies within us all,
it’s for us to find it somehow.
But for it one has to have a positive soul,
and take things with grace and a bow.

    This is fantastic poem & a beauty,
    Happiness is the enlightenment within reading this, your poetry…

    Krishna, Welcome back, and no wonder you have, with such a bang,
    We had been missing you long, you have to now make up for our pang.

    An excellent and thoughtful poem.
    Nice to meet you here, after a long
    break, Krishna.

    “in trying to to settle” – an extra “to” here.
    A flexible rhyming carries the poem along well.
    A bit of a “tough love” feel towards the subject, straight forward style.
    Krishna,
    I saw the title this morning while thinking things over and it was with a real happiness that I spotted the author’s name.
    It’s good to see you back,
    Fergus

    Vey good poem! Recently I had my own shot at defining happiness, which aims to be more “scientific” and “objective” (as much as this is possible for a subjective feeling such as happiness):

    “A person can be considered to have experienced a “happy” moment if the person chooses to re-live it as an end in itself if offered at no cost.”

    For the detailed derivation of this conclusion please have a look at What is happiness? ; What do you think about this definition?

    Thank you,

    Nick
