Happiness

I know now
What my first mistake was:
Happiness
Isn’t some blissful state you reach
Some ultimate nirvana
Some clearing in the woods

It is going to bed at night
And not already dreading
Having to get back up again
It is a back ache that goes away on its own

It is the little victories

Because there are no big victories.
