|Happiness has much to
Although it might require sacrifice.
People very often will refuse it,
Perhaps because it means one must be nice.
Yet some can find love strong enough to choose it.
There is no simple, practical advice
Embracing all that one must do to gain it,
Nor set of rules, consistent and precise,
That would help happy people to retain it.
However, all things precious have a price.
