Finding Happiness

Time is on our side so they say,
Though against it we fight from day to day.
Some things we cannot change though we continue to try,
Ignoring what we actually have control over till the day we die.
If life is what we design,
Then why do I have no castle or princess to call mine?
Overlooking what we truly own,
Chasing a life media has shown.
Blind to what we see everyday,
Unhappy until death is the American way.
We chase riches and fame,
Thinking our unhappiness they will tame.
Some will get there only to see,
They cant escape the problems they flee.
Take the time to cherish whats yours,
Never close lifes open doors.
Give thanks for the smallest pleasure,
And happiness you will know beyond all measure.
