Happiness- an inner monologue
Go ahead- put the pen to the paper and let it all out. Fears, frustrations, passions, and worries. Let the words melt away your feelings.
Come what may...
Happiness is something that people search their entire life for and some who cannot find it or who have been let down by it end their search and their lives early.
Some believe that it is love that we yearn for, but it is happiness that drives us.
While happiness contributes to love, love may also come with many other emotions or agendas.
According to Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs, we all must earn, gain and keep things, titles, feelings, and people in our lives to reach the point of self actualization.. to be complete... to be happy. He knew that happiness wasn't unconditional- that it had to be reached for and worked for.

100 words - HalloweenThe glow of a candle behind the tortured face, that watches as the rustle of the leaves terrify the goblins and gouls that roam the darkened streets, flickers evilly. The grin widens as screams of the frightened grow louder and more frequent.
Closer and closer to the gates of hell, the damned attempt to disregard the faint cackling coming from behind an obscure doorway. A shadow rolls in over the moon and the door slowly creaks open and the keeper of the inferno appears in a haze of thick black smoke. A skeletal hand uncurls, holding a cauldron of candy.
Behind Every Soldierbehind every soldier
is a girl
who is waiting....
either a mother
or a lover.
holding onto the hope
that one day
she'll be able to see him again
she's laying in bed
wondering if he's okay
she's going to the post office
to send out care packages
that he won't receive for three weeks
sitting on the computer
for hours on end
hoping he'll get online
even for just a second
she's the one
for time to fly by
so she may see her soldier
she's the girl you sit next to in class
she's the woman at the super market
she's the kid down the road on the bike
waiting for him to come home
support the troops
Tonighttonight i lay in bed and pray
you're thinking about me
i watch the stars
and the moonlight glow
wishing you could be here
to hold me
and kiss my neck
whispering in my ear
that you'll be there when i wake
across the ocean you are now
miles in between us
forcing us to sleep alone
but in dreams there we are
i wish you were here
so i could drift into the slumber
i so long for
but tonight i look up at the moon
wondering if you're looking at it too
we're connected that way
never too far apart to bear
as long as we can see the moon
and the stars
i make a wish
but you're still not here
nor is the sandman
Another Bad Breath Morning.
My Messy Hair Again. I Wake
Up With My Attitude And Bitch
About My Skin. I prepare To
Apply My Mask To Cover And
Conceal. Shut Up! Just be Beautiful.
Fight To Appeal, Slip on that cute
Shirt, Damn! It's too tight. squeeze
Into those skinny jeans That zipper
Sure puts up a fight. Comfort or style,
Flats or heels, Put on that sunscreen
Girl, It's never sexy to peel. Lip stick
And mascara, Hair dye and french nails.
The Pursuit of perfection and all that
I have Become A Slave to Sex Appeal.
