With It To Value

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

Peace of mind received to get,
With it to value and kept possessed...
Is not just a 'thing' one wilfully leaves,
For anyone else to perceive or believe..
That material success and 'that' to get,
Is more precious to value.
With wants and wishes to flaunt that best.
While one is subjected,
To the making of monthly payments...
From a dwindling treasure chest.

Peace of mind received to get,
Isn't planned when it comes.
Or selected by request.
Or threatened by creditor calls one avoids,
With hopes one's debts delinquent to pay...
Will not effect,
The rating of one's peace of mind enjoyed.
Or discovers to find one day to be annoyed,
To have a claim of ownership publicly destroyed...
By an unexpected re-possession.
