Pursuit of Happiness

What is the ultimate goal for every individual? To be successful, wealthy, important, famous, renowned and so on?? To be one step ahead of everybody else, to be a philanthropist, to be a national symbol, to carve your name in history?? To own fancy cars, have a paparazzi following, flaunt your wealth etc.?? To be religious, to spread God's word, to be a world savior?? Or even to fight for your motherland, fight for your religion, fight for your kith and kin??
What is the ultimate goal in life??

The rat race has consumed us all
through summer, winter, spring or fall
Made us oblivious, even blind!
to the real woes of mankind!
Doctor, scientist, engineer
teacher, cook, cashier!
So many jobs, so much choice!
The mind does get lost in this noise!
Why do we work so hard and long?
Why do strive away lifelong?
Why do we spurn our kith and kin?
In the run-up to a professional win!
Money,fame, prosperity:the holy trinity!
without them, where would our world be?
What do we aim for at the end of it all?
Sit back, relax and have a ball!
The pursuit of happiness is not an easy track!
It has led many into the oblivion black!
But the real way to be happy
Ask yourself, do you love being snappy?
Does it titillate you to work overtime?
Does it motivate you, a life in crime?
Do you enjoy a bite of chocolate?
Do you rejoice a game of cricket?
Enjoy the little things in life!
Lets not waste all this strife!
Pledge your happiness and seek your vow!
The world shall cheer when you take a bow!

The past is history, the future is a mystery. Today is a gift, that's why it's called "the present"!     -Anonymous
