In case of Discontentment



April PAD Challenge: For today’s prompt, take the phrase “In Case of (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write the poem. Possible titles could include “In Case of Emergency,” “In Case of Oversleeping,” “In Case of Snoring,” or something else.



In case of discontentment
I keep a mental list
Of sweet and simple blessings
For I am heaven-kissed
Beneath the crumbs of living
Beneath its muddy tracks
The peace of simple blessing
Atones for what life lacks
