Price of Happy

Price of Happy

Daily Prompt: Happy Happy Joy Joy

What do you want to be?
I want to be happy.

What makes you happy?
I don’t know.

With power and wealth
I get a glimpse of happiness,
But I can’t grasp it
Can’t put it in my pocket.

Happiness is around me.
I’ve seen it.

It is on the faces of people
I pass on the street.
Their laughter
Their smiles

I’ve seen it as couples kiss,
Embrace.
Their faces exude joy.

I’ve searched for it.
Amazon
Starbucks
J.C. Penny
Macy’s

The things they sell
The things I buy
Bring a smile to my face

But
Why can’t I just buy happy?
