Take Solace

Take solace....
In what you have; ratherthan what you wish for
In knowledge, when others struggle to know
In financial breakthrough; when others falters to spend
In honesty, when others can't be honest
In truth; even when forced to lie

Take Solace.....
In what you look like rather than what you hope for
In wisdom when others pretend to know
In attraction when you seem to have it all
In beauty; judging by today's criteria of beauty
In been satisfied; when you don't have it all.

Take Solace......
In the love you have; rather than the one that never came
In the relationship wavering because of you; rather than clamor for what's yet yours
In appreciation; rather than aiming for a dig
In all that you have which seems not enough; but otherwise worst for others.

At the end, the maker is not so blind that he can't see.
For within you lies endless happiness
But in self contentment come Peace.
Peace forever.........

    One should remain contented what God has given him. People generally chase the mirage for peace and happiness. Positive write.

    'At the end, the maker is not so blind that he can't see.
    For within you lies endless happiness
    But in self contentment come Peace.
    Peace forever.........' is the gist of the poem. Congrats.
