SELFISHNESS

We keep what we have when we give it away
A beautiful adage that’s easy to say
More than that it arrived just in time
To help when my mind was at a loss for a rhyme
I first heard those words in drug recovery
They worked for others
They might work for me…
Wisdom through experience
They had accrued
Providing my thoughts with much needed food

No matter how tortuous at times is my style
If in humorous mode I make one person smile
Their happiness is mine
And I wish them to know
That smile
Makes me want to go on with the show
