It’s all about beauty for me, isn’t it?
Well… one might think from my poetry…
admiring the feeling
of being admired for something I’ve done
(maybe even by myself),
not exactly who I’ve become.
It’s kind of a conundrum, honestly.
And it’s the equation for happiness
at the everyday level,
But, I guess I’ve become the things I’ve done,
and tried to do them beautifully…
honestly, at the possible cost
of never doing them
So, yes, I guess I choose beauty
my formula for sustained happiness…?
maybe I mean just for goodness
(that’s a kind of success, too).
