Few is Much

I choose to keep
less and less
things
less and less
people
as time goes by

And yet I feel
more and more
happiness
more and more
peace
in this saying goodbye

Those that I keep
are truly worth
the letting go
of all the others
that are not worth
my time
and
not worth
my life

The number
of things and people
does not determine
the quality of my life

I have found that
fully devoting myself to
the few
people and things
that really stir my soul
brings the deepest and truest
lasting happiness

Find your few
give them your all
You cannot give all
to many

Giving to many
is like rays of light
that are diffused to many areas
it does not burn

Only focused rays of light
bundled into
a point
burns

I need not many
I cannot have many
I have not many
I don’t want many

I have few
And that few
to me
is much
