Are You Happy Where you Are?

Are You Happy Where you Are?

 

Are you happy where you are

Friendships all OK ?

Or are things a bit rocky

With things you need to say ?

 

Are you happy where you are

Does me-first niggle you ?

Is empathy part of your psych

Or is this missing too ?

 

Are you happy where you are

No secrets left inside ?

Or are there some still some lurking there

You would still rather hide ?

 

Are you happy where you are

Do dollars rule your life ?

OK, they are essential, but

Can cause you lots of strife

 

So are you happy where you are ?

It's you who must decide

Depending on the change required

And how you feel inside

I like the title - and the way it leads the reader to various aspects of
happiness, contentment - or otherwise - in life. It would make a good
title for a song...and The Beatles could have done something with
that as a theme back in their day.

Thanks Martin. No it wasn't addressed to any specific individual but for the general reader to ask themselves the questions posed. One of my serious poems.

I am wondering with the tick box whether the reader should be asking themselves the questions you pose or whether you are addressing it to a specific individual. Either way it is still a fine piece of poetry.
Nice one Don
