Should I Be Content

Should I be content?
With what I haven’t tasted
With what I haven’t felt
Places I haven’t been to
The hand that life has dealt
Or should I rend my wings
As I burst into flight
And soar for just a while
In blur of vivid white
Claiming the day and night
Then fall to the ground spent
Unable to repent
Lying still to die
My last thoughts 
A question why
I could not be content

    Contentment, an illusive condition for very many people, the desire to go beyond the hedge and taste something different is hard to evade. Interesting write my little Desert Orchid. Take care, Richard
