Lost and Found


Belongings lost grant wisdom's gain,
possessions, - if they come again -
cannot contentment bring, soul soothe,
as on Life's tramway mortals groove.

Distinctions must be made: from pain
reactive hope responds, seeks strain
symphonic, harmony to move
free, forwards, from walls, all remove.

Through causal links heart sings refrain
more optimistic, may refrain
from fear, what others may approve,
to confidence as days improve.

Empowered yolk sheds yokes from wasted past,
prepares fresh dish delicious, tastes repast.
