When is it enough?

“Nothing is enough for the man (woman) to whom enough is too little.” – Epicurus.


The material possessions fill our lives

More and more we demand till the end

That elusive feeling of contentment is rare

Do we ever say it is enough for us now

Only those are happy who are satisfied

With all they need, and not all they want


Written in response to;Weekly Prompts Wednesday Challenge – Enough, hosted by Sue W and GC

  1. I haven’t been able to read due to moving to a larger home. This hits straight to the heart. I lived in my RV for 4 years. It was then I truly learned “contentment”. My creator and I talk about it daily. It has been hard adjusting to something bigger, NEEDING more things,…it’s all good as I know my sons and families can all stay with me (particularly on this cancer journey). Your beautiful poem hits straight to my soul about how little I truly need. I miss my minimalism and am keeping things “as needed” only. It’s all stuff! It’s not going with me!
