Real Life Stories And Poems

Are you content?

Are you content with the person you are,
And your possessions which are many by far?
Or are you making your life a living hell
By being unsatisfied and within yourself yell?

Being content does not mean you are not
To make plans for improving your current lot.
Planning for the future is a good step for all,
Or you will never achieve your full potential.

Being content means that at this very stage
Satisfaction you find with your whole self - age,
Appearance, whole of your life and all that you own.
Do not let covetousness rule your heart's throne.

For unless you are now content with what you possess,
No matter how much more you have, even to excess,
It will never be enough to bring you satisfaction.
You'll always want something else in your collection.

For all that you have received take the time to adore.
All of your blessing, trials, goods, family and more.
Accepting all these things with true contentment,
Will bring to you wonderful peace and fulfilment.
