Something New

Reading Time: < 1 minute

I lost what I owned,
But I gained anew.
I needed the old,
But wanted to keep the new.
How desperate was I, how ungrateful.
Could not I celebrate the new?
I had asked for more but was unthankful now,
What I had lost was all I thought about.
I could not live in the moment,
I lived in the past and imagined the future.
I gained nothing but emotions,
I gained nothing but pain.
But the time had passed; moved on,
And I, again, asked for something new.

The key to life is humour but the realities are real and need to be addressed time and again.
