Am I Content?





Am I Content?
The question today...
If I thought for a minute
I think I would say

Am I Content?
Sometimes, I'd say yes
I'm happy in life
With family, I'm blessed

Am I Content?
When I am running
The answer is yes
If the sunrise is stunning

Am I Content?
When I am skiing
And the lake is a mirror
Sky's reflection appealing

Am I Content?
Other times I'd say no
Because I like challenge
And new ways to grow

Am I Content?
No, I'm still going
Outside to find fun
Adventures not slowing

Am I Content?
No, I'm not dead
There are places to go
Thoughts to be said

Am I Content?
I guess you could say
I am very  much content
If I can still play


I'm linking with my buddy Deb Runs for Wednesday Word.

Please visit Deb and the other participating bloggers.  It's fun!

  1. Have I told you lately how much I admire your gift with poetry? Truly, I do.

    This has been such a great blog prompt with so many great posts abut it!

    I don't think being content and wanting to grow are mutually exclusive. :)

    1. I would think everyone has areas of their life where they are quite content. But that doesn't mean their isn't discontentment somewhere that will necessitate change.

    1. It's easier to rhyme
      When I have little time...

  7. Not only does my friend sing, but she's a poet too! Love it. I agree with Marcia ...a book of poetry about running filled with mailbox greetings would be awesome! Don't get too content though ...we have plenty of cycling miles to tackle this year!! xoxo
