What is Joy?

Where is joy?

Joy is inside you.

Not in attainment of things desired,

nor in the achievement of goals made.

So then how is it created?

You watch a small girl on the playground,

neglected by her parents, but look how her face lights

up when another child comes and says

something, then taking her hand and pulling her

to the playground.

You see, it is always there, never

truly extinguished,

like life. It is but in the simple

feeling that lies within you.

Know that this joy is unaffected

by any other circumstance,

and joy will be forever.
