Clouds of Contentment-

“What is contentment?”
Onyx eyes plead expressionless query

Our minds tell us to find happiness within idolatries
But do you really want to embrace insects?
Is that the skeleton key unlocking contentment?

I should be content with understanding my dreams are not my own-
Blonde, wavy curls breathing life into blackened eyes
forced contentment with feigned alibis:
Arid evenings beneath Arab skies

What kind of life is that?  Honestly.
Contentment plagues,
while rhetorical questions scrape decency away…

You know- I’ve never been this nostalgic
of insects before.


About hannahjustine

This is my life story. Don't expect for me to entirely spill the beans on everything, but my life is certainly a sloppy recipe of writing, research, realizations and love. Basically, I'm learning as I go. I strive to positively impact my community, my sphere of influence. I believe that this happens only through living your life to the fullest!
