A Lasting Scent

Sometimes I sleep
Other times I lay awake;
Wondering if there is more
To life than this suffering

How do I neutralize my karma?
What must I do to finally win?
It is said that happiness is within
Within what? Within who?

I search myself. There is not.
I search the Earth and Heaven.
There is not a lasting scent.
No lingering joy for me.

Yet a thing urges me on.
Ongoing I keep. Moving ever.
As if someday I shall overcome.

Somehow, someway I shall overcome.
