My Practice

The pursuit of happiness
that’s practical

I practice it everyday
because it’s so elusive

And poetry helps me
pursue that happiness

Reading poetry helps
but writing is the best

And writing this poem
made me happy

I’ll bet reading it
made you happy

Admit it
you’re smiling

That’s a good way
to pursue happiness
