KWAKU SEARCHES HAPPINESS (TANKA)

surprising-science-happiness-video

I

Kwaku searched and searched

To steal and have happiness

His search was futile

But he kept at it with hope

Stalking every smiling face

II

He bought spectacles

And bought guns to scare and seize,

Saved money to please,

And bought handcuffs to cuff him

When he catches him at last

III

He went to churches,

Interrogated Imams

He went to all monks

Hired pilots to search the sky

But all yielded no results

IV

He then met a child

And asked about happiness

The child told him this:

Sincerely, it lives in us

You only need to search you

V

Kwaku sat and thought

It’s what the pastor told him

Same for the Imam

He needs to arrest himself

In thought and be so happy

Just a simple Ghanaian trying to find the best in our society. I may be fun, I may be interesting, I may be funny, I may even be foolish or intelligent, but it is all based on the mood in which you find yourself. I believe our minds make us who we are. Know that, pain, no matter its 'unbearability', is transient. Unburden or delight yourself for a while in my writings please. And all corrections, advice and opinions are welcome. Know that you are the king, queen or royal on this blog. :)
