Take Away

You experienced death

But did you take away sadness?

You experienced success

But did you take with you joy?

You experienced pain

But did you learn courage?

You experienced relationships

But did you take with you love?

You experienced the world-

The mountains, the trees,

the cool autumn breeze.

The people, the places,

A thousand lustful gazes.

But from it, did you gain anything at all?
