WORK AND HAPPINESS

WORK AND HAPPINESS  
Inner pleasure is so charming  
but it leads to what's crestfallen.  
Life outside us is quite lovely,  
but its loss can always frighten.  

Where are we from the solution?  
One is endless but not blithesome  
while the other is so brilliant,  
but its end is like snake venom.  

Life is great when work can fill it.  
Man can find his joy in labour.  
He will find an outside blitheness,  
and his Lord will like his manner.  
 
Milliards have arrived and parted  
only few are highly honoured.  
They've enjoyed their lovely voyage,  
while on them their fame's been showered.
