CONTENTMENT, November 6, 2010

Sometimes it’s hard

to let the chips fall where they may

but life is happening

around us each and every day

we seek to be in control

and make the decisions

but the only control we have

comes from our admissions

that happiness is an illusion

contentment the goal

satisfaction lives inside

hidden within the soul

we can’t dwell in the past

for now is at hand

time is passing us by

like an hourglass of sand

don’t live for tomorrow

and miss out on today

youth is a gift

stop wishing it away

accept the things you have

for the true miracles they are

love and kindness

are the best rewards by far
