Dreams are made of hope 


Just as your hope for a better future 


You have the hope of happiness 


But happiness isn't the goal 


It's comperhention 


To remember all the mistakes you have done to not do them again 


To understand every point of view 


To live in someones shoes without even touching them 


Happiness is easy to lose yet everyone searches for it 


Even tho it won't last long 


I guess me understanding that my future isn't going to be amazing based off my happiness

But my understanding 


I want to be able to understand my partner 


Later on my own kids 


To be able to comprehend their feelings 


Not to look at them with a side eye 


But instead give my full attention 


I want to love unconditionally 


To only one never more 


I guess I have an understanding that sometimes having everything or anyone isn't always good 


Sometimes just having that one person feels better then testing out all my interest 


Just because I find it interesting or have options doesn't mean it is good for me 


There are plenty of fish in the sea that's what they say 


But I would never think of those plenty of fish if I already caught one 


There is no fish that can be exactly like the other 


So There is no way I would throw it back to sea just so someone else can find my treasure 


I have all my options 


Many interest 


But it doesn't mean it will benefit me 


That's my understanding 


My goal isn't happiness but to understand 


More than skin deep

  • Comment from author about the poem: What I’m saying is when you are to busy on looking for happiness or trying to find it by attempting every little thing your interested in just because it’s a available sometimes doesn’t benefit you at all. It makes things a lot more complicated then it could have been. For example let’s say I’m stressed so I go drinking a lot it becomes a habit. Instead of doing that I could have tried to understand my position and fix it. Because now I have to deal with a bad habit and see all the time I spent drinking for a temporary relief that I could have spent on something more beneficial. I used dating for an example In my poem some people don’t realize when they have a good person in their lives and become completely blind sighted by all the other options with unknowing outcomes just because they are available. When what your looking for could be literally right there with the knowledge of it being a long term good outcome. It’s basically like seeing a 100 dollar bill on the floor but ignoring it because you feel there might be something better. You end up losing what you found before because someone else took it. Except for trying to understand situations or your position in life you start just doing things looking for a positive result. When really you can simplify a lot of things by just realizing and understanding what you have and seeing the bigger picture on how to solve. People are to busy trying to have fun in seek of happiness but it ends up being temporary and a slap in the face. It’s all fun and games until it’s not fun anymore.
