Speaks for Itself
When what you have seems not enough
and prompts your search for more,
Don’t leave the house before you know
just what you’re looking for.
For many tempting snares may try
to lure you off the track.
and fancy you to satisfy
with what you do not lack.
Some yearnings aren’t the same as needs
They don’t require much thought
And often what you do acquire
are things you never sought.
Much better and before you leave
Discover what is true
That you are full and rich right now
And nothing need accrue.
But time’s not wasted either way
Surprises may appear
when something that you didn’t plan
becomes what you hold dear.
