Whoever said happiness can only be found in singular forms,
must’ve never been anyplace out of the norm…
Where your comfort zone is challenged from all angles,
all sides, all points and directions that make it difficult to understand.
How, what, when and who would put you in a place of change?
One thing you know, it feels good though…
Maybe its just a dream state that I’m living.
Pinch me…but not too hard to wake me up,
back to the realism of my overpowering world,
where the level of happiness is based and explained
by the traditional sense of family, dog, pool, work and friends…
At this point, just let me continue to dream
about what feels good and not what feels right.
Leave me alone a little bit longer so I can linger on to this place,
where my guard is down and my emotions are up.
Let my dream carry on because I know when I awake,
then it’s back to “happiness”.
But for now, at this very moment, my dream is still real…
And it feels damn good.
