Imagine trapping joy inside,
putting on a leash and keeping it by our side.
Sounds so easy but so very hard,
to keep reminding ourselves of the little-big things that
we keep it hidden in the storage and then wonder
where they are.
Like a dog chasing its tail,
we go in circles looking for clues;
treasure that’s underneath
but will remain unseen
as our eyes remain glued to the sky
as we mortals believe only stars can shine.
