My Most Prized Possession
Like the cleanliness of a floor with nothing on it, and as the deep sea’s endless flatness presents to us a peaceful existence when it can, I prefer nothing. My most prized possession is not having one. John Lennon mentioned this idea in a song or two; Buddhists consider the notion, too. Even Christians are against forms of greed, though Satanists enjoy the notion of indulgence. No one wants to make a mistake… I have goals. Many people do. I love to write; being able to is a talent I consider to be somewhat of a possession of mine.
I am new to writing as a craft, compared to what I want to be able to do with it eventually. I have been able to write well for most of my life; I realize that there are techniques that I still have yet to master. Anyone can sit and jot some prose without too much difficulty; I am still new enough with writing to be in pursuit of my own style and voice. I do already have both a voice and a style; you do, too. Being able to choose your own voice or writing style can be a challenge if you make it hard on yourself. It will be a worthwhile endeavor, even if we do not find these goals to be easy. Not for me… natural talent is one thing; I still have some exploration to do in the world of grammar and style.
For the most part, though, I am happy with what I can already do. My talent is hard for me not to covet; being too proud would certainly have its mindless drawbacks from a secondary perspective. I love to write. I plan to. I like reading others’ writings; I want to do better than most. I think I can.
So, to be new to an old art is a fun and exciting adventure. I do not have a lot, worldly possession wise. I am not overly concerned with the notion. I will be thrifty or giving when I can – I hope my books sell to millions of readers before I die. I have a few projects that I am working on. Life is not easy for me, for now. With tentative financial debt and a dedicated quasi-addiction to writing; I do what I can.
Hats off to you though, if you chose a car or house or even a week-willed person. You can have something and suffer the consequences as a calculated cost. Praise that idol. Keep it well. Let it all go; the choice is indeed yours when you are able… know that I am behind you. I hope you as the audience enjoy my words. I, from time to time, put what thought I can into them. My goals with writing are usually achieved in my opinion. I have nothing else I want more, and I plan to gain, gain, gain.
I have no possession to covet; my writing is my breath of life. If you have read this, thank you for your time and more power to you. Be what you can be. Choose well, for the future is at hand.
