Finding Happiness?

I couldn’t find my happiness
It wasn’t in its place
Not here
Nor there
It’d disappeared
Or hadn’t ever been…
“I’ll find it yet!” I said
I swore
Then sat in Thinker pose
But
-Although I checked behind
Below
Beneath
Bereaved?
I couldn’t find my happiness
Although
I found my sock.

  1. I’ve reread this fun little piece and am honoured by your references; yes I do spot me in this poem but you’ve put your own twist on it; the aussie band, Powderfinger, made an iconic hit on ‘My Happiness’: it’s a great topic
