Log Cabin Chronicles

Contentment

ADRIENNE C. FISHER

Content: what is the meaning of content?
I picture it large, yet, it may be small,
try to determine what is truly meant,
Is it perception, or real feeling to recall,
Is it outside ourselves or from within
the family we make, the old friends we keep,
Is it a constant covering like skin
or are there times when despair's what we reap?
Is it to sit, to contemplate, to breathe
in quiet slumber, being unafraid,
Is it the choice to never have to grieve
or grow strength to stand in sun as well as shade?

One last question keeps troubling my mind
Is it elusive for our humankind?
