Contentment – slipping through my fingers, and hard to grasp
My true wealth and treasure beyond words
Constantly searching for its resting place —
Can it be found on an island surrounded by a green desert
or on a floating city in the middle of a vast ocean?
Wherever I go, it eludes me.
Can I find contentment in the beating hearts of humanity
or nestled in the warm embrace of a lover?
My search leads me to a glimmer of an answer…
It is a state of mind. It always has been.
Penelope Reyes, 2010
