Am I really content?

I am overwhelmed with contentment

I feel whole

I feel like I have been here before

I feel like contentment will never end

I feel alive

Then I ask,

What is being alive?

Is this just me aware of a conscious state?

Is it just being confined by skin?

Questions that seem to be answered by many with simplistic remarks

Remarks that hold no truth

Remarks that hold no evidence


These remarks are accepted by many

Is the simplicity of such remarks show the lack of individual thinking?


Does it show the lack of free thinking from a society faced with too many choice?

Then I ask myself,

Am I really content?
