An Emptiness Collected (Things)

Things,
People pray for.
Things,
People have.
Things,
All around the people.
And things they have make them sad.
Things,
They ask of God to give.
Things,
They get don't please.
And when they realize it's not things they need...
That touch that is desired and wanted,
Has come to leave...
Them!
With their things!
And a generous offering,
Felt...
Of an emptiness collected!

    We can so easily become addicted to collecting things not realizing that with each acquired object we may give away another small piece of our souls.
