A simple poem I wrote on the spot, Still learning poetry so give any critiques you have.

Contentment



I am content

I have everything

Friends

Family

A livelihood

So why?























Why isn't it enough?

Shouldn't I be happy?

I have everything

I am content

But maybe...























It's just being human

Contentment won't bring happiness

Maybe happiness doesn't exist

Or...



Maybe I'm not trying hard enough

What's wrong with wanting more?

I've put in enough work to be content

So just maybe...



I can put in even more work

And then just maybe

I'll be happy!
