Discerning Contentment - Poem by John Hazon Palen

I'd go singing but I cant.
Truly wonder why?
I don't have might that I want!
But why are my steps light?

Fairy, where are you going?
Please keep answering.
There are these complicated things.
I'm like in wanting.

I think my life's in deep void;
living with no choice.
Oh, but you showed the way back,
My eyes brimmed with thanks.

I'm like this gloomy rain then.
But somehow I changed.
Future's reflected by present.
A strong guy I'd been.

Seeing now myself saying..
Nobody's perfect,
We all have our weaknesses.
But God gives blessings.

My family's ever supportive.
Contentment I gained.
I'm made of more than my past.
Doubt's just my false hush.

We can't have all things. Till end,
Life's about learning.
Thank you, Fairy, for glowing.
I don't think I lack anything.
I'm already king!
I'm already king!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Man can't choose what abilities or skills he should be possessing in his life. Just like, in a sense, a flower can't choose the place to where it wants to bloom.
