Happiness: Comfort or Truth?

Truth Confronting Ease

Some say happiness is found in ease,
some say in truth.
For when I lounge and ease desire,
I find a gnawing ravenous mire.
But when I turn to face a lack
I think I know enough of truth
To say that in life, hurdles
leapt are more
than all else I can accquire.

Inspired by the Robert Frost poem Fire and Ice, after hearing some people today who truly believe happiness is about satisfying every material want- I had to counter that somehow.
