The Pursuit Of Happiness

Updated: Mar 4

In this country,

the pursuit of happiness

is often mistaken

for the pursuit

of personal

pleasure.


The problem is,

pleasure does not equal happiness.


It is only

a temporary fix,

that leaves us,

unfulfilled.


And too often

we’re in a constant state

of seeking

more

and

more

pleasure.


This leaves us feeling

emptier

and emptier.


We seem to forget

our freedom

comes with responsibility.


-C.H.
