Contentment

Why is it contentment is so difficult to achieve
Its hard to be happy whether you have little or much
I never realized, but its harder than it would seem
We are always worried about cars and houses and such
It's all about the American Dream

You can't be content if your chasing material things
But we have let ourselves become marionette puppets
And we have allowed society to control our strings
Satisfaction that a possession brings fades in minutes
Contentment cannot be bought
