Pursuit of Happiness
That all men are created equal;
That they are endowed by their Creator
With inherent and inalienable rights;
That among these, are life, liberty,
And the pursuit of happiness;
That to secure these rights,
Governments are instituted among men,
Deriving their just powers from
The consent of the governed;
That whenever any form of government
Becomes destructive of these ends,
It is the right of the people to alter or
Abolish it, and to institute new government,
Laying its foundation on such principles,
And organizing its powers in such form,
As to them shall seem most likely
To effect their safety and happiness.
Effect - making a desired impression
Power to produce results; efficacy;
Force; validity; influence; accomplish;
Make happen; bring about; bring about;
Purpose or intention; operation or execution.
Not just an illusory fleeting phenomenon.
The pursuit of happiness requires effort
No government can secure it for you
Many try and the results are disastrous
To promise happiness is preposterous
It must be pursued by the relentless
Pursue - to follow in order to overtake,
Capture, to strive to gain; seek to attain;
Accomplish; to proceed in accordance with;
To continue; go on a journey with; capture.
To be fully engaged in such an adventure
One must be devoted and determined
To walk by faith and not be disillusioned
Endure delays, denials, and disappointment
Circumstantial setbacks and rejection
These will test your ability to continue
To wholeheartedly pursue and endue
A positive attitude and journey on to
The happiness you greatly aspire to
Possess, maintain, employ, and enjoy.
Happiness truly exists and is no ploy
Neither is it an amusing, trifle toy
I'm not trying to be trite, or coy
Happiness is considerably valuable
Certainly happiness is most attainable
Much more easy than stuff purchasable
Happiness is an inside job most doable
Juxtapose your perception and reality
Cultivate happiness within continually
Than with or without you will be happy
Because happiness is an inner quality
Accessible to all equally and pursued freely.
