Poetry – Whatever you have

Whatever you have

Whatever you have

                Is never enough.

You can’t have

                                                Too much stuff.

                                                To fill the hole in your life.

You can own the world

                Rule everyone

                                But that’s not enough

Though everything’s better than none.

For you can never have enough

                Whatever the cost

                                Even if it means

                                                The whole future is lost.
