Happiness as Rebellion


Maybe we should stop growing up
All it seems to teach us is that happiness is forbidden
How did we forget to delight in the simple beauty of existence?
Our supposed maturity is ignorance
disregarding the small pleasures that make up life
No wonder we require constant diversion to numb the pain
We tell ourselves stories to justify the lack of life
Saying that arbitrary suffering is righteousness
that this self-flagellation will earn some future bliss
so we waste the only opportunity that could truly grant happiness
The present moment
