The Pursuit Of Nothingness

On the quest for happiness

I used to cling to dreams

They were gold and fun and right

but after every achievement, I felt emptiness

so I thought, maybe my dreams weren’t right

##

Every dream betrayed me

left heartbroken by everything that seemed to be true

As soon as I started to feel happy

It just disappeared from view

There is no point in wanting

There is no point in dreaming

It will never be enough for you

Always wanting, always needing, always dying

just to have something to do

Until the day you realize it’s not about what we do

 

real happiness comes from inside you

I struggled so long to seek happiness in goals and gold

Until I realized

happiness isn’t sold or rewarded or given or told

So,

When the cities are cold and my body grows old

I’ll be happy as a smart old man

Just sitting and enjoying the nothingness as it rains all over the land

Wanting nothing from something and wanting something from nothing

is a trivial pursuit of man
