Realizing contentment is tough
You have a lot, but there’s always more stuff
Now on the list
The New IPhone 6
Even with that, it wont be enough

You thought you were happy with 5
Now without 6 you won’t feel alive
The screen is so big
There are so many gigs
If you can’t have it, will you survive?

You realize that you have no money-
21st century gluttons are funny
“I’m broke” you say
But find money to pay
For things you don’t need… It’s baloney.

To be happy- I think we forgot
We should be satisfied with our lot
To my children I plead
Stop saying “I need”
Be thankful for all that you’ve got.
“He who is not contented with what he has, would not be contented with what he would like to have.”

No Excess
