Searching and Searching, but not finding

The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.

Socrates

I’ve been searching and searching
But not finding any answers to my questions

I’ve been searching for a path into the temple of happiness
But it seems I’ve been searching and searching
In all the wrong places.

It seems I may never find the temple of happiness
That I’ll forever keep taking shelter
In this shack of sadness I find myself in
For I’ve been searching and searching for years
But I’m not finding answers to my questions.

Where is this so-called temple of happiness I’m failing to find?
And how do I enter through its gates?

These are the questions that plague every waking hour of my day
They are the questions which keep me up at night
I just hope I’m not doomed to keep searching and searching
But not finding any answers to my questions.
