Something To Lose

The poets have said that if you don’t have anything, you have nothing to lose. But, we all have something; something that we don’t want to lose. Sometimes it is tangible and sometimes it may be in a dark corner hidden away and we may not even know we have it until it is gone or taken from us; and there are some things that once gone can never return, like innocence. Too often, the things that are important are things that we carelessly let go, and too often there are things we cling to that are useless and trivial. Yet they can’t be pried from our icy, cold dead fingers.
