To Have

To have is to be happy
To have is to accumulate
To have is to value things
To have is to be effective

It doesn’t matter what you have
What matters is how you have it
What matters is how long you have it
How valuable is what you have?

We can have anything we need
But we can’t have everything we want
Happiness is not really in what we have
But in what you did to have it

Accumulating things will make you have
But it won’t make you more or less happy
Value things will make you have
And it’ll make you a person of value

You are effective in what you see as yours
Don’t just be concerned in having
But also be concerned in giving
That’s the true height of declaring your ownership
