Thinking about what we have,
Is always a good place to start.
Not always wanting more and more
But being content with the present.
If we think carefully we all have a lot,
Therefore it is unwise to seek for more
Else you will never be satisfied,
Always wishing for extra.
To have anything makes one very fortunate,
And life in itself is a gift.
Though we may not all live in luxury,
We have more than society wants us to think.
Everyday we are the victims of advertising,
Telling us always to buy.
Yet it never wants us to be content
And just get on with our lives.
Society pressures us in every way,
But can we stand up and say no.
Despite the fact it is against the norm,
We can all make a stand for what we believe.
So let us not be ruled by the world,
Or always follow the crowd.
It may be easier but is not wise,
So why not now make a stand!
