True happiness
A man who has never loved will die in sorrow
For true happiness will lack his soul
Never having lived a day always living in tomorow
Holding everything in his control

Greed overwhelming his heart and being
Earthly objects bringing happiness to mind
Yet it is himself who he is deceiving
For souless objects can not bring him the happiness he is longing to find

Happiness can be seen through others eyes
When great gratitude is shown
Yet to have never given nor loved by time of demise
Portrays a life of happiness unknown

Each morning we wake to liva a day and a night
For that is natures call
Through life we feel a contenting light
But over that light darkness must fall.

A man who never wants back from what he gives
Shows the happiness he has found
Yet a man who in greed his life he lives
Never stands on sturdy ground

Again I say he who has loved will die with a happy heart
And forever live in grace
Yet he who has not, will die and his soul will part
To be forever forgotten in disgrace.

A man who lives a lonely life dies and becomes a lost soul.....if he has love in his heart and is able to share it with others, then he is happy not only with himself, but others and when it comes his time to die, his soul will rest in peace. I honestly belive in order to love others, we have to love ourselves first. Not in a greedy way either....
