To have or have not?

To have or have not

Which is the nobler of the two?

Should one forsake one pinnacle for another

And let fortitude win through?

When faced with choice or gain

Should we pick the loss of little pain

Or that which provides such rich reward

And bloated may our egos be?

Is profit to be the substance of our content?

Is winning all about the prize or

To run and onwards race

And resilience be our just reward?

Oh such choice, what a paradox.

Would that I were clairvoyant

And life’s outcome see.
