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

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
