The Secret of True Happiness

We spend our lives wishing for more,

More money, more things, more experiences, more friends,

But this is not the path to true happiness.

Happiness is not having what you want,

But wanting what you have.

This is written for the Friday Five Lines or Less prompt from Patricia’s Place. The idea is to write a story or poem of five lines or less. This week’s word is “wishing.”
