Happiness is a Blue Frog

Photographer unknown: Blue Frog

Blue frog,
is it selfish
to pursue happiness?
Why is life so hard?
If not for this
I’d be happy
when life hurts.
Can you choose
happiness?

Our mind is a magnet,
desperation
and detachment,
we attract what we feel.
Why did this happen to me?
Blaming
and forgiveness
I’ll never forgive myself!
I’ve lost everything!
It’s good to make money!

Our beliefs
keep us trapped.
Does money really make us happy?
Rich people invest,
poor people consume
where wealth begins,
focusing on what we want,
commitment,
but we can’t change.

We look for good things,
attracting opportunity.
The world doesn’t
have to change
if we ask
for what we want.

Finding answers
is the importance
of being
happy.
