Content With Life

I’m content with life

Not happy

Not sad

Simply in the middle

As I continue to grow

Many people may not understand

How it is that I’m able to stand

And simply put, I’m content

I stand, yet I could still break

If given that opportunity

But most importantly

Even if I fall

I have the strength to get up

And continue to stand

I’m content with my life

Not happy

Not sad

Because things in my life

Still bring me down

But my determination

Is what keeps my two feet on the ground

My pride is what keeps me from

Buckling down

I’m content

Missing love

Longing love

Missing companionship

Longing companionship

But I’m content

Because those will

Come when most needed

And when I’m most prepared

Until then

I’m content

I will continue to be content

Because that’s what keeps me alive

That’s what keeps me joyful

That’s what keeps me sane

Being content

Without lover’s lane
