Happy Nobody....Casean Sonnet

I have no wealth or property.
To give men cause to envy me
Nor do I envy anyone
I earn my crust as best I may
Do something different every day.
Sleep peacefully when day is done.
Though other men strive for success.
I’m not ambitious. I confess
I shirk responsibility.
I decided long ago.
To drift along, go with the flow.
I live my life completely free.
From worry and anxiety.
Happy to be a nobody.
