    FELICITY
    By Alan Stallsmith

    In search of felicity
    I befriended despair
    Drudging up past demons
    That I should have left there

    These memories haunt
    These insecurities roar
    Sometimes my mind
    Doesn't know what it's for

    I grasped so tight
    My hands they bled
    I slept so long
    This life's a bed

    Awaken! Awaken!
    Demand brand new!
    Take action! Take action!
    This can't always be you!

    These days haven't ended
    And the clock's hands still move
    And this life is a train
    Conducted by you

    So in meeting felicity
    I looked in the eyes of despair
    Said "Thanks for the memories.
    But I no longer live there"

    A wonderful reflection to rouse the weary and disheartened, alan650. I enjoyed your rhyme scheme as you worked your way through. Welcome to the zone!

                I didn't even notice you rhymed til someone mentioned it. This was good, turns of phrases and 'meaning' presenting definitely relatable events and tendencies... Kudos-
