Joy vs Happiness; Sorrow vs Unhappiness


Birth of a child,
A promotion,
Seasons’ first rain,
Loves’ first kiss,
There are certain things in our lives, which give us immense joy, provide sheer ecstacy.
They are but temporary feelings of joy.

Happiness, the ability to enjoy the moment and also know its temporary.
Happiness, the ability to deal with pain and also know its temporary.
Happiness, the feeling of hope and love inside, no matter what is happening outside.
Happiness, what every human deserves and can get!


A death in the family,
A loss of job,
Unrequited love,
There are certain things in life that cause us a lot of pain,
But they too pass.

Unhappy, When you think what has happened is the end of you.
Unhappy, When you think there is no hope in life.
Unhappy, When you think you are unlucky.
Unhappy, Only when you think.
