What I'Ve Come To Prioritize

I have had possessions,
To treasure and collect...
Over a period of time.
To find that leaving them behind,
Left me temporarily depressed.
Twice I did this to never regret.
Since what I have found in the process,
Of letting go to forget and not even reminisce...
Is a keeping for me what I've come to prioritize.
To remember and not to dismiss or be tempted.
And...
With a doing to learn some difficult lessons.
Not at all to my surprise to endure them to pass.
That had nothing to do with my ability...
To acquire the obtaining of things,
That could never stay forever with my kept interest.
Not to last.
Especially when I began to see clearly,
What it was I had been blessed to possess...
To set my standards much higher.
