I recently found a bunch of my writing projects from my creative writing class in high school. I decided to re-write some of them, coming from where I am now. I am going to focus on a couple of poems. The first one is “Happiness Is…”. It was one of two poems we did as ice breakers at the beginning of class. The second is “I Am…”. I already rewrote the first one, and am working on the second one! They are pretty simple, but made me look at how I’ve changed. I was in a difficult period in my life when I wrote them the first time. This time around, I am in a much better place.
Happiness is warm blankets and a cool breeze.
Happiness is forgetting what I am thinking when he kisses me.
Happiness is family cuddles.
Happiness is a food experimenting gone right.
Happiness is buttered noodles.
Happiness is a TV marathon.
Happiness is that first jolt of caffeine hitting me.
Happiness is a hot bath.
Happiness is a cool pillow.
Happiness is a well-written book.
Happiness is a well-worn hoodie.
Happiness is fuzzy socks.
Happiness is feeling at home.
Happiness is a craving satisfied.
Happiness is Candyland and Spice Girls.
Well, basically, it is a rambly poem. The next one will be a little more deep 🙂
What is happiness to you?
