Loss

Laugh at loss.
It’s impossible to lose,
what we don’t have
Houses
Careers
Others
Money
are not ours.
They can be gone in an instant
through events beyond our control.
We never have them,
only exist with them.

What you have can never be lost.
Heart
Wisdom
Spirit
Love
Peace
These are yours for life.
Yet, we trade them for things
we could never have.
In that trade,
we unconsciously loan them away.
