Happiness is obtained by being grateful for what you've got.

And then you find yourself drinking until you vomit blood just not to rot.

Translating: I'll never be happy. Simply because I always want more.

But happiness is a bit overrated.

Not in all the cases, it varies from one person to another.

Well, I find it overrated. Just a bit, at least.
If one is happy, what's he/she fighting for?

To keep that happiness

If one has to fight to keep that happiness, is it really hapiness? I don't think so.

One will always fight for happiness even when it does not seem so. Even the most normal "family" is fighting for their life. In the end, we are all fighting for our happiness or we just learn to live with what we've got.

I love the feeling behind this, but I find the "just not to rot" dulls and almost confuses the power behind the second line. Then I start thinking, is that thrown in there just so it can rhyme? Maybe I'm just not getting a clear picture of that sentence.

Firstly I thank you for the time that you have spent on reading and thinking about it! That truly means a lot to me. Secondly I am sure that you got a perfect picture of the entire piece and the "just not to rot" part was put there exactly to dull thing a little bit. Since this is a free verse poem a rhyme is not always necessary but without that last sense it flows more like an ironic sentence rather that one that depicts the hypocrisy of life.

I see what you mean: too raw would make it a little too...emo, I guess. Good job.

This is so amazing! So true, it really captures the entire feeling in just a few lines, and it had a very strong impact :D
