One Man’s Story

 

 

 

Man at bar

Magazines, commercials and TV shows all say…

Happiness can be yours if you can afford to pay

The decision was easy when he looked at the price…

The cost was his soul, he didn’t think twice

Ironic, such a success with the house and the cars…

Yet at night he sat alone on a stool at the bar

One day he starts feeling like something isn’t right…

He is tired all day but he can’t sleep at night

He goes to the doctor anxiety an all-time high…

Doc says “reduce your stress, or you’re gonna die.”

He leaves determined to relax and unwind…

But quickly realizes the pills cannot undo time

His prescription a cocktail designed to deliver ease…

“Take two of these a day and smile more please.”

If only they had pills to help him forget…

A lifetime of memories all filled with regrets

Regrets of years wasted chasing money and fame…

Hoping happiness will be the end game

Living a life where happiness is just out of reach…

“One more million, I’ll be happy, you’ll see.”

70 hours a week the cost of happiness is high…

Yes, even love was purchased-his life was a lie

He did what he was told to, hustled and worked hard…

Now his health is failing and he has played his last card

His wife left with half and the kids…

He never really knew them but now wishes he did

He looks down at his drink thinking why me…

“is this all life is meant to be?”

He never stopped and saw the perfection of now…

How could he, that map hadn’t been laid out

we aren’t being shown the path to true bliss…

Instead we are told happiness is a risk

We must start to live one moment at a time…

Recognizing every single breath as divine

This life has been gifted to you from above…

A journey to remembering the meaning of true love
