A Simple Man

All I want is a simple life
No conflicts,  no disputes, no strife
No ambition,  no goals, no aspirations
No defeats, no disappointments, no frustrations

No desire to compete, no drive to get ahead
Only the freedom to choose the path I tread
No hunger, no cravings, no avarice or greed
Only the ability to help those in need

All I need is my daily slice of bread
A roof over my head, and a comfortable bed
The love of my family, the respect of my friends
Forgiveness, tolerance, a chance to make amends

I just want to be comfortable in my own skin
I just want to reconcile with the circumstance I am in
There’s no great purpose to my life, no grand plan
My only hope is to be remembered as a simple man
