Things of Need

When I open up my cupboard, 
I find it full of items, 
lost…and then found. 

This piece of glass, that item made of metal. 
We melted hot wax there, see what happened?

Treasures uniquely similar, 
if not in material, 
they… are by purpose of design, 
to take up space in our lives. 

We need to step back a moment and sort. 
Divide the things that take,
and the things that give. 
Some offer us experiences, like how to?
While others, simply pleasing to look at for a time.

The goal, to make sure…
We own them, 
and not they…
us.
