If Only

eye-1209039_1280

If Only
I had my own house
I’d be fine

If Only
I had my own stuff
I’d have a big smile

If Only
I had more money
I’d be content

If Only
I had designer clothes
I’d feel confident

If Only
I had a snazzy car
I’d feel uplifted

If Only
I had a sleek laptop
I’d not worry a bit

If Only
I had more shoes
I’d be happier than before

If Only
I had gourmet food
I’d no longer feel sore

If Only
I had the new Wii
I’d be just like my mates

If Only
I had the XBox
I’d be one of the greats

If Only
I had a flatscreen TV
I’d feel fulfilled

If Only
I had the IPhone
I’d need nothing else

If Only
I’d known that having all I want
Would make me want much more

If Only
I’d known the answer to true bliss and happiness
Was not to have wanted all this before

    @ Ersa: =) Yep, I notice most of us (me included — except when it came to the XBox etc) set goals to achieve ‘things’ and then once achieved we just want more and more…when are we ever going to be satisfied with what we have?

    @ AD: Oh…I’ll look it up if it’s on your blog. My problem is that things have to rhyme and then sometimes, I think, I lose out on the meaning! =S
    Thanks for the comment =)

    The materialistic “if onlys” are positively unending. ๐Ÿ™‚ If only they really brought what we thought they’d bring.
