Never Satisfied



When satisfied
You are happy

When satisfied
You are contended

When satisfied
You are overjoyed

When satisfied
You pass it over to others

When will you be satisfied?
In death you need nothing more.

Before that
The eye will not be satisfied to see

The ear
Will not be satisfied to hear

The mouth
Will not be satisfied to eat

And the stomach
Will never be full
