The Art of Losing

Just read somewhere
So let me share
The Art of Losing
Doesn’t have to be crippling

When you accept the fluster
Release the need to muster
The Art of Losing
Can actually be freeing!

Even when something we lose
Brings on the blues
Like money or car keys
Don’t mean we can’t shoot the breeze

Take a byte-size moment
To savor the sweet present
Then what you lost just now
May suddenly be found

More importantly though
Just so you know
Sometimes it’s the loss
That opens a fresh cause

So embrace the Art of Losing
From it, there can be gaining
Let go of your fears
Embrace all the tears
For from the dusk comes forth
A brand new dawning!
