Beatitudinem the golden ghost

Self help books
sell ghosts
to haunt your head
falsely lead
to expectations
of something better, further ahead

All these ideals
and narratives
We need to shed
yet letting go is so hard
when you’ve been sold the ethereal
beatitudinem the golden ghost
to which you could apparently become host
but, or so I’ve been told
happiness lives only in our heads
