Such is the Force of Happiness —
The Least — can lift a Ton
Assisted by its stimulus —

Who Misery — sustain —
No Sinew can afford —
The Cargo of Themselves —
Too infinite for Consciousness’
Slow capabilities.

    True happiness comes from serving others where mighty work is done. The egocentric person carries a burden that slows us and strains us. When we get over ourselves we free ourselves to meet our potential.
