Are You Happy?

Every happy man hides a secret
It's hidden just behind his smile
Something dark and something wicked
Insidious, malevolent and vile

I've observed the happy man's smile
It never reaches his eyes
His eyes that are full of hopelessness
A vacant stare that bores through lies

When I walked in dark streets of this city
I often thought of the happy man
Jealous of his happiness, slightly
Could I ever do, what he can?

Maybe some of us are not meant to be
Smiling, laughing or simply happy
Because once The Fire sets in a soul
It doesn't stop till it burns it all

What use is happiness if it doesn't burn?
Like stars in the night, violent lessons learned
Fueled by fear, anger, hate and malice
Who the fuck would want happiness?
Every once in a while, i like one of my poems more than I like other of my poems. This one is a favorite child.
