My Own Happy

An anchor keeps you grounded
But this one leaves me drowning
Gasping for breath in the morning
In the salty waters of my unshed tears
Award winning actress to the unaware
Emotions buried to festering ooze
In a desperate search for respite
From the load of crushing pressure
Lack of joy, hope and purpose
The vacuum threatening implosion
Futile external exploration
For you to give me these things
It is only I that can permanently provide
An unconquerable happiness
From deep down inside
With constant reminder of that which I have
Gratitude for it all
And the absence of focus
On that which I have not
