You will hear many replies.


Look around.
For sale signs are everywhere.

Take a look at the faces of the sellers.

Grim, dull eyes, tired and spiritless.

You can see and feel a void within them.

You ask them how they came by the void within.

You will hear many replies.

 I sold a piece of my soul to feel safe.

I sold a piece of my soul to survive.

I sold a piece of my soul for a large sum of money.

I sold a piece of my soul to be powerful. 

I sold a piece of my soul to stay in a relationship. 

I sold a piece of my soul to keep my pride. 

I sold a piece of my soul to keep peace in my family.

I sold a piece of my soul to get approval and love. 

I sold a piece of my soul to feed my ego. 

Now gain back your long lost soul.

Let go of what really does not matter.
Cherish what truly matters.

As suggested on a previous review: Let go of your attachment to things, stuff and the wontedly superfluous trappings we drag behind as baggage (habit) we're afraid of losing. As your poem adroitly points out with its subtext, one can't lose what one doesn't have. Much of what we value is of no value to the longevity of the inner self.
