Material World

I need to cherish what I love
Stick to the basic human need
Of coping
Find solutions, options
Formulate imperceptible improvements
Make emotional investments
Realise what I have
What I own
Know my assets
I don’t want to be
Marginalised
Disenfranchised
Disengaged
Enraged
I don’t want to be
Downsized
Streamlined
Criticised
Redefined
The answer is there somewhere
In the links and ties
Which bind me to others
To those I value
And who value me
I need to cherish what I have
And do something about it
