We can never be happy,
When we are dissatisfied;
As we compare what our neighbours have,
And what we lack!
Lacking breeds jealousy,
Envy gnaws our dissatisfied mind,
We will never be at peace and on par,
When we want to keep up with our Joneses!
Our craving mind demands more and more,
Till we work our guts out,
Trying to fill up a bottomless pit!
Eradicate this craving mind,
Contentment will cut off its cancerous growth,
Enough and sufficiency will set in,
And form the base of the pit;
Slowly things will change and appear in a new light,
And we will have calm and peace within!
Unlock the door of contentment,
And spread it on all that we have,
This is the secret key,
Which unlocks the door of true happiness!
