The heart sometimes want
What the hand cannot hold,
We think and think;
And wish and wish –
And sometimes go out to get it
But we fail to ask of its cost.
For we bargain with our lives,
In order to get momentary pleasures
And we give our soul,
In exchange for finite time
Sometimes, its okay not to have,
For no man can have it all
But in not having,
Do not be satisfied therein,
For then laziness will be at your service,
And slothful will attend to you
And in the end,
You will be covered in rags
Therefore, while you have not,
Do not let your have nots steal your joy,
Rather seek to be better
And find your value,
For therein lies true contentment…

(c) Chukwudi I.
