Contentment!


Contentment is the secret of a satisfied life
It often protects us from envy and strife
If things do not turn out the way we expect
We give thanks and do not retain regrets

Contentment brings peace joy and comfort
These virtues are under- girded with love
A contented soul is not moved by triviality
But often sits in the company of nobility

Contentment is to acknowledge current reality
And use wisdom to motivate some creativity
To be satisfied with where you are now in life
While using faith and skill to achieve your goal

With contentment you gain peace of mind
And you never will have to sit and whine
Because your desire is to scatter sunshine
You achieve this with help from the Divine

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
