Precious over Possession – Poem

The people in your life should never be compared to an item.
They should hold a value of so much more.
There shouldn’t even be a comparison of people,
against the things you can buy in a store.

A person or memory cannot be possessed like an everyday item,
for they’re far to precious to simply place a dollar amount.
They cannot be replaced if broken or lost,
unlike an item sitting on shelves with a seemingly endless count.

If you hold an item at a value greater than a simple dollar sign,
Those things you possess will gain possession over you.
Treasure your memories and those people held dear,
and realize its precious over possession in all you do.
