The Pursuit of Happiness

America categorically states it.
Ghana firmly guarantees it.
But can I really pursue what makes me happy?
When I’m not sure where it will lead

I never played hooky and I passed all my exams
I found a job that pays for a little more than most.
One day when my teeth are few,
Will I be able to say I was happy doing what I did?

Maybe I should try something new,
Like playing the cello,
Or follow my heart lands afar
Maybe happiness will then pursue me.


  1. Great start, dear friend. You're really savvy in your 20s! Welcome. Make this place beautiful, ok?

  2. Thank you very much. I'll try to brighten the corner where I am!!!

  3. Hey you. Nice to see you on here. The pursuit of happiness.hmm...a lot of times doing what makes us happy means choosing the roads less travelled...with unknown destinations...and that can be exciting.I find that when you make the first choice, it emboldens you to make bigger choices, and whatever happiness you derive from that makes it all worthwhile. See this link for an interesting article about doing what you love:
    I'll be back!

  4. Thank you, Esi. I certainly will. I hope what I do will love me back!
