Contentment

 

When do we have enough?

Seems we are never satiated,

Always wanting more and more,

Far beyond our needs being met,

To, in the end, a ridiculous excess.


So we super-size our burgers and fries,

And the rest of our lives as well,

And in the end, what we have,

Is an unhealthy body and bills,

We gladly obtained but cannot possibly pay.

We all should be content with what we have. I know that is easier said than done. Everyone wants what they don't have then when they get it they are depressed because they can't pay for it!! Excellent poem full of wisdom and great advice for life! Take care,~Chessly
