Happiness may be closer than we think, just blocked by other forces.

It seems like everywhere I looked,
happiness was no where booked.
Seems like I was chasing a ghost,
with invisible as a host.
Happiness was no where to be found,
seems like only pain and misery around.

Happiness can't be measured in one smile,
it has to be kept at least awhile.
The more I tried to hold on,
seems the forces of evil acted upon.
So I went after the evil enemy,
found him lurking inside me.

The evil was easier to find,
with it hanging right in my own mind.
Happiness was also hanging,
but was covered by evil banging.
I dealt strong with my evil friend,
I fought him until no end.

After defeating my evil foe,
my happiness made a steady flow.
With evil down and defeated,
joy and happiness was completed.
Life is truly more fun,
without evil around,
blocking the sun.
