our limited perceptions of happiness

Om mani padme hum
Picture Om Mani Padme Hum kindly provided by h.koppdelaney
why is life, but a sad state of affairs for most people?
it seems that one only just gets by,
always only by the skin of one's teeth...

is this telling us something?
should we always be so stressed about it,
should we always be so worried about it?

things have their own path anyway,
whether we like it or not...
maybe it just we have to do our best and then let go,
what path will follow, will follow its own path anyway...

maybe it is only our attachment to things,
that is the root of our suffering...

don't die trying to grasp thin air all the time,
don't die trying to find the pot at the end of the rainbow all the time...
as that is an illusion,
so is our limited perceptions of happiness...
