I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.

Happy As A Pig In Mud

Happy As A Pig In Mud

Happiness is.......well happiness is what we all make it
happiness will skip you if you try to fake it
Happiness is being you and no one else
Happiness is feeling good with who you are and loving yourself
Who is more happy than a pig in mud
Splashing and rolling like a child in a tub
He is happy with his mud as it makes him who he is
Rolling around happy as can be minding his own business

Suppose we all could be as happy as a pig in mud
How splendid the world would be
happy with the simplicity
Happy with just being you, happy with me being me
The money you have will get you your private jet
Millions of people attention i bet
But what is your happiness on a scale of one to ten with ten being the highest
For me, i am a pig in mud, muddy from ear to hoof, but my happiness shines the brightest
I have no pressure from expectations from a world that wants a molded me
Just give me my mud puddle, that's just happiness to me

If you want to, you can take my hand, now strip that mold from you
Let your true self be in all that you do
Come, do you want to follow me down my little mud path to my mud hole
You may just laugh a little, have fun a little, get back in touch with your soul
My mud puddle is for those who wish to be happy once more
those who have lost it from the inner core
So if you see me walking down the street with a smile as wide as the joker's
Its because i just came from my mud hole, willing to bring any free loaders
So happiness to me is quite simple bud
I am as happy as a pig in mud

LOL@Ericdierker, mud is the earth and the earth is a wonderful place without humans.

Well I had to clean myself off a bit just to comment. My boy and I think that dirt is great, and mud is heaven sent. At least our poor mom and wife, have happy boys.

Great hub, thanks for the reminder to be happy.

Hi Clive. I love this poem. Although it seems simple it is not, for it carries a profound message: the importance of what happiness truly is, to be happy with Self. I so enjoyed reading this hub. Thank you. I am smiling.
