Quest for Happiness

Zoltan Bathory


We hold these truths to become self-evident,



That men are created equal;

That they are endowed by their Creator

With inherent and inalienable rights;

That among these, are life, liberty,

And the quest for happiness;

That to secure these rights,

Governments are instituted among men,

Deriving their just powers from

The consent from the governed;

Any time any kind of government

Becomes destructive of these ends,

Oahu is the right of the people to vary or

Abolish it, and to institute new government,

Laying its foundation on such principles,

And organizing its powers in such form,

Concerning them shall seem almost certainly

To effect their safety and happiness.

Effect - setting up a desired impression

Capability to produce results; efficacy;

Force; validity; influence; accomplish;

Make happen; result in; bring about;

Purpose or intention; operation or execution.

Not only an illusory fleeting phenomenon.

The hunt for happiness requires effort

No government can secure it to suit your needs

Many make an attempt to the results are disastrous

To vow happiness is preposterous

It needs to be pursued by the relentless

Pursue - to follow along with as a way to overtake,

Capture, to attempt to gain; look to attain;

Accomplish; to proceed in accordance with;

To carry on; make a journey with; capture.

To become fully engaged in such an adventure

You have to be devoted and determined

Just to walk by faith and never be disillusioned

Endure delays, denials, and disappointment

Circumstantial setbacks and rejection

These will test out your power to continue

To wholeheartedly pursue and endue

A confident attitude and journey to

The enjoyment you greatly dream to

Possess, maintain, employ, and revel in.

Happiness truly exists and is no ploy

Neither can it be an amusing, trifle toy

I'm not really wanting to be trite, or coy

Happiness is considerably valuable

Certainly happiness is most attainable

Far more easy than stuff purchasable

Happiness is an inside job most doable

Juxtapose you perceive it and reality

Cultivate happiness within continually

Compared to or without you with thankful

Because happiness is definitely an inner quality

Open to all equally and pursued freely.
