Content Of Mind - Poem by Francis Duggan

In a World where everybody wants to be a billionaire
Truly happy people to say the least rare
Yet the accumulation of large amounts of money happiness to few ever bring
Contentment of mind is a wonderful thing
And though many in life do pursue elusive happiness
Contentment of mind a great gift to possess
In the contented minds there is no room for greed
Enough for to get by on is all they do need
Many of the World's wealthiest people are poor in some way
Their worries seem to multiply by the day
But the contented do sleep well at night
If they have any worries of them they make light
True happiness is elusive is how it seems to be
To be content of mind would be sufficient for me.
