How To Be Happy

Happy are the rich,
for theirs is the kingdom of this earth.
Happy are the conquerors,
for they will need no comfort.
Happy are the opportunistic,
for they will take what they want.
Happy are those with self-esteem,
for they are satisfied with themselves.
Happy are those who seek fairness,
for they will get what they deserve.
Happy are those who experience sexual pleasure,
for they will see so many things.
Happy are the successful,
for they will be called leaders of men.
Happy are the honored, accepted, and understood,
for theirs is the kingdom of this earth.
Happy are those who keep their life,
for their reward is great in the moment.

*Inspired by Peter Kreeft's talk on happiness and Jesus' sermon on blessedness.
