The Book of Ours

After Luke 12:13-21

It’s not the possession
it never is
it’s the motive,
the inspiration, the impulse:
as if we earned it
we paid for it
we own it
and it’s our rock
it’s our insurance
our security our hedge
not the least of which,
because we earned it
and we want more,
because it’s never enough
we want more
we need more
we earned it
it’s ours
our Book of Ours.
