    A Fruitless Destination

    One of the worst human flaws,
    is our choice to reach for happiness,
    searching blindly,
    desperate for something we slap a label on.

    It’s so close
    that we can almost touch it with our fingertips,
    but at the last second,
    it pulls away.

    So caught up in our journey,
    that we forget our road is important,
    just like our destination.

    We jump,
    and for one brief second,
    we can touch happiness,
    before it comes tumbling down,
    and we
    fall
    with
    it.
