Contentment and Freedom

“woman looking upwards on grass field” by Ethan Hoover on Unsplash

Contentment with our place in life

Contentment with its rhythmic flow,

Watching new scenes unfold each day

With changing nature of what is seen.

Contentment in earth’s simple beauty

Desiring no new toys with which to play,

This contentment brings real freedom

Freedom to be who we really are.

Without contentment, inner conflict lives,

Conflict about who and what we are

Confused in thinking who should we be,

No inner peace as this conflict thrives.

Freedom liberates us without demands

Only asking we be just who we are,

Contentment with all we have right now

Our only way to be truly free.
