Are You Yours?

Mine….belongs to me…
Words are used
To pacify the mind.

Dresses in variety,
Jewels invaluable,
To display prestige.

And, you have to think back,

Can you stop being getting old?
Can you be away from illnesses?
Control bladder, Bowel motions?
Are you the same refreshed in the morning?
As you went to bed at night?

The time has come to ponder……
Are you yours? ? ? ? ? ?

    I liked the way of life (as preached by Buddhism) that you've defined in the poetic words used here. Simple, direct, and true to yourself.
