Gyros or Chemicals I have never understood happiness. Happiness is something you must bestow upon yourself; if you rely on other people to make you happy, you'll generally be disappointed. As clear as this concept is to me, I can never endorse it wholly; happy people appear to possess something internal that fuels their joy, or some instinct which gravitates them towards happiness. My inner gyro always spins the other way, towards a general sadness . . . bad for contentment, but good for writing poems.
