Happiness Theory

Supposedly we seek happiness

A state of perpetual peaceful contentment

Calm waters and clear skies for our personal eternity

Supposedly, happiness is a good thing

Really though happiness is the precipice of a cliff you don’t know you’re at the edge of

The middle space between two endpoints

It will not last because it cannot

No more so than a mirage can sustain a wanderer

The harder we chase it the further and grander it becomes

Happiness is a paradox designed to trap those unable to cope with reality’s horror

In this world the most devastating things are also the most beautiful

Our greatest achievements come only after our great failings

We find unity after tragedy

Perhaps, for us, happiness is really just a nightmare with a pretty face

Happiness, as we define it, is a socially acceptable name for hell
