Finding What We Lost - Poem by Sonny Rainshine

Where do you keep your joy?
Did you install it
in a strongbox or tuck it
in your wallet?

Have you given all your zest away—
Get it back!
It’s not something to sell
or to toss in a sack.

You say the travails of life
have snatched it away.
Relocate it. Take it back;
redeem it today.

    Sonny, if we could only bottle zest, I'm sure it would be a big seller... excellent write! !
