Yours Alone

Yours Alone
January 5
Proverbs 5:15-17
Drink water from your own cistern and fresh water from you own well. Should your springs be dispersed abroad, streams of water in the streets? Let them yours alone and not for strangers with you.

It is good to share, yes that is true, but not entirely so
for there are things which you posses that you should never let go
things that should remain your own
are best enjoyed by you alone

There are those who are less aware
of consequences suffered by those who share
those who share do so in vain
for sharing invites needless pain

Sharing with strangers is the thief of fun
I speak honestly for such I have done
seeking to capture an impossible prize
ignoring the facts before my eyes

It’s yours keep it do not give it away
it’s no one else’s please don’t try another way
enjoy what’s yours all on your own
