No Prize to be Won

If you cannot be content amidst life’s chaos,
You cannot be content.
For true happiness is not built in a vacuum,
Or kept safe on the printed page.
Like life it bursts through barriers;
Profiting from destruction,
Adapting to setbacks.
If you are not happy when life goes badly,
You will not be happy when it offers you a gift.
So ask yourself:
Would I do it if there was no point to be proved,
No prize to be won?
