A CHAPTER ON LOSS

On the bottom shelf in an old bookstore this dusty book he came across

It was filled with a myriad of chapters including this one…about loss.

 

And as he read these words…he thought…wouldn’t it be great if we could found a way

to etch these words into the hearts and minds of the people of today.

 

Words like these provide wisdom…if we take the chance to read them

and they can change the world…if we take the time to heed them:

 

 

If you lose your fortune…you’ve lost nothing…f

or it’s only material things you lack

and if you’ve had a fortune once…

you can always get it back.

 

If you lose the courage to stand up for what you believe in…

to practice what you’ve been taught

then unlike losing your fortune…

you have lost a lot.

 

If you lose your honor and integrity…

then you’ve lost even more

for without these no matter how wealthy you become…

you…are truly poor.

 

And if you lose your soul…

for whatever reason large or small…

and fail to get it back…

 

then you have lost it all.
