The true treasures of life

dog-4286921_1280

Every day I realize
More and more what I have
It isn’t my belongings, dusty on shelves
It isn’t the things I’ve accomplished
Or even the things I’ve mastered
But instead, It’s the people
And the experiences
The beauty of life itself
These are the things that matter
The things that are worth loving
The things I want to fight for
I hope I never lose sight
Of the true treasures of life

    1. No, it certainly isn’t. It’s easy to lose sight of what’s important because it’s human nature to become distracted with unimportant things. Thank you for stopping by and commenting. 🙂

  1. Michelle well said. Especially, these lines:

    “But instead, It’s the people
    And the experiences
    The beauty of life itself
    These are the things that matter”

    Is that you and your dog in the picture. It adds so much to the poem. Keith
