warm socks straight from the dryer,
        you like it that way?
but how long does the feeling stay?

ever bowl that perfect strike?
        enjoy a good fist pump
because another frame's coming up.

how about retail therapy?
        buying something new,
after the rush, then what do you do?

ever jumped from a perfectly good plane?
        wondering why all the way down,
feet so glad to feel the ground.

then there's the old promise
        of the beer buzz and weed waste,
liars they are, nothing but a fake taste.

the perfect job, making lots of money,
        buying a fast car or a big house,
still looking for the perfect spouse?

how about your spot on the couch,
        that extra comfy space,
can't always find your happy place?

contentment is what it's called,
        but it's for sure not from here,
you see, to find it with a capital "C,"
        to God alone you must come near.
