Happiness, where are you?

Happiness, where are you?

By: WAN

 

Happiness, where are you?

Please answer me, oh please answer me…

I’m so tired of my tears

I’m so tired of searching the light

Open my heart please!

 

Darkness, I’m begging you…

Please leave me, Oh please leave me…

I’m so tired of hiding away from my fears

I’m so tired of staring at myself at night

Oh happiness! Please open your door for me!

 

 

My dried branches, my drained heart and eyes

Can you see it “world?”

Please have mercy on me, melt this ice heart

Please fill me up with your love…

I’m begging you…

If you can finish my life, please do it

It would be better for me if you will do it

So it will end my miserable life…

I’m so tired of finding my luck…Oh please finish me…

 

My tongue is tired of tasting the bitterness

My eyes are tired of staring at my nakedness

My soul is tired of dancing on these flames

My heart is wounded by these shattered dreams

I hope someday I can taste the heaven’s creams

 

Oh please happiness show me your light

Lead me to a place where I can rest at night

Put back the smile that had been lost for many years

Put back my strength so I can face my fears…

Oh Happiness, Oh happiness, please catch this painful tears…

Very good. You're seeing happiness as a painful devil. Isn't it interesting that Aristotle's "Nicomathean Ethics" ties the good life all up with happiness?
