I stepped out looking for Happiness

But no matter how much I looked around

All I found was a colossal mess

Seemed like happiness did not want to be found

.

I stepped out looking for Joy

But no matter how much I looked around

All it did was destroy

Seemed like joy did not want to be found

.

I stepped out looking for Peace

But no matter how much I looked around

All I managed was to sneeze

Seemed like peace did not want to be found

.

I came back home

No more interested in looking around
