abundance

it looks to some
like i’ve let go of so much
to have this life

they see phantoms of what is not there
which seem to overshadow
all i hold on to:

time
memories
light
love

i would not define
the things i do not have
as a sacrifice

rather i would say
i am weak with greed
for these things i do.
