Happiness (or not)   Leave a comment


Happiness was swept up and dumped into the trash barrel today.

I’d found it lying on the sidewalk.

 It had been stepped on, broken…, shattered into a dozen pieces.

 To my surprise it wasn’t sturdy, or solid, but hollow and fragile.

But then, Hope and Serenity were much the same.

They also had been shattered by the carelessness of the childish.

Ah, well….., shouldn’t have expected so much of painted, plastic stones purchased at Wal-Mart – 3 for 99cents.
