POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
I once had a co-worker who spent her days talking about her designer possessions, and criticizing the possessions, of her co-workers, that were not made by designers. It's fun to have a couple of status symbols, sometimes. To feel that nothing is worth having unless it has a name on it does not add the type of value that is important to my life.

I agree, Patricia. I had fun buying Jordache (lol) jeans, when his stuff hit the mainstream. But of course that's what watered down his brand, the availability of it to everyone. It wasn't exclusive anymore. But his name was still important for a while longer.

I really adore this poem Sandi. It is not in a name that counts but what is in the heart. There is nothing wrong with wanting something with a special brand on it as long as it does not cause you to belittle others with less. Nice write.

Thank you Jesus! I agree, because it works out much better for me to not be focused on chasing after a designer-filled life. And if I was doing that, it wouldn't be fair for me to criticize others for not following that path, for whatever reason. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

beautifully penned, this is true on people who likes signature clothing but it's much better to have simpler things in life, to be simple is great.
