Beyond the Eye
Life can seem so tedious
And wrought with discontent...
Focus may, thus drift askew
to yield a view that's bent.
I aspire to quest for joy
that nests beyond the eye,
Love and beauty there is found
where tedium can't vie.
I pray to want that which I have
not yearn for what I want,
and graciously give humble thanks
lest my attitude grow gaunt.
For many in this world lack much
and great their daily pain,
I have no right to discontent
to sing a sad refrain...
It is true, that I've been blessed
with more than most, it seems...
my heart cup runneth over with
more love than fills most dreams.
Though life can be quite tedious,
It's gratitude I choose.
For if I become, thus, discontent,
life's treasures I will loose.
