Hey, I love writing. Everyone has an opinion, so share it through writing. Have an amazing day everyday!

I took some advice from a peer review. I really appreciated it! I added a new stanza to describe what kind of happiness I was trying to describe. I need to work on flow and rhythm, and that will be fixed soon. Any feedback is super helpful! Have a fantastic day!

We all strive for it.
But what is it?
A distraction from our worries,
Or a brand new way of life?
Is it confidence or pride,
Or smiling at your neighbor?

We see smiles everywhere.
On our timelines, 
and even random strangers.
Happiness is more than just a smile.
Happiness is waking up and saying,
”Hey I’m going to be okay.”
True happiness is a way of life. 

True happiness is rare.
In a world full of such hate.
It’s there waiting for you,
Though fogs hide it from view.
Laughs and smiles will reside,
No matter what you’re going through.
