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,
Their faces exude joy.

I’ve searched for it.
J.C. Penny

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

Why can’t I just buy happy?
