Man of a Few Words

I told him he was
a man
of a few words
he said
"Yup, I know."
Hold on to things that give you meaning
The rest don’t belong in your home
Your heart, your mind, your life
Hold on to things that make you learn
Make you grow, make you yearn
The rest don’t belong.
Hold on to things that make your life
Not the ones that ruin it
Or make it sad
Hold on tight
And tighter
To things
And people
That will make you smile
When you think
About them
10 years from now
The rest
Just don’t matter.
