For what do we own

Is owning a house the uppermost treasure? Or the ultimate car, designed for our pleasure? Are jewels your most desirable need? Or plenty of gold to subsidise greed? Is a holiday home a much needed asset? Or private jet the privileged facet? Is stacking accounts with plenty of money, your equivalent to the bee with its honey? There are those in life who have all of these things, who question the happiness that it brings, for we enter this life with only our breath, returning all our belongings upon our death.
