Another poem about contentment
This post has been awarded 32 stars by 8 readers.

I have resolved to live a life content,
Quite satisfied with only what I have;
I will not whine, nor will I e'er lament,
But face each disappointment with a laugh.
For life is measured not in what I've gained,
Nor in the feeble hope for wealth and gold;
Such hungers, like the links within a chain
Around my wrists and ankles firmly hold.
No, I shall count with care my every joy,
And every simple blessing I've received;
No discontent nor envy shall alloy
This wondrous happiness I have achieved.
My sonnet's done; on graceful wings it soars.
I hope it gets a lot more stars than yours.

Wow, so serious until the last line. :D I wish I could rhyme like this! When I try, it ends up sounding like a five-year-old with a crayon. :D
