‘Waste not, Want not’

August 25, 2016

Waste not love, want not hate,
Waste not truth, want not fake.
Waste not have, want not wealth,
Waste not life, want not health.

Waste not gain, want not lost
Waste not free, want not cost.
Waste not now, want not then,
Waste not keep, want not send.

Waste not peace, want not war,
Waste not near, want not far.
Waste not calm, want not noise,
Waste not grace, want not poise.

Waste not high, want not low,
Waste not fast, want not slow.
Waste not joy, want not gloom,
Waste not hope, want not soon.

Waste not trust, want not lies,
Waste not laughs, want not cries.
Waste not best, want not less,
Waste not know, want not guess.

Waste not help, want not need,
Waste not full, want not greed.
Waste not heat, want not chill,
Waste not strength, want not will.

Waste not youth, want not age,
Waste not book, want not page.
It is when we learn to cherish what we’ve got,
That we Waste not, Want not.
