A lesson through simple lost
i only felt it missing
after walking up those steps
and the taxi has gone down the road
there goes my identitycard, bank card, membershipcardthey are all cardsreplaceablepieces of plastic
suddenly not in one's pocketbut at the mercy of someoneelse's kindness
i hope someone will be kind
and return it if he finds it
in the mean time, phone callsto make, police report to file
i lost a bit of me today
in that thing I carry around
what pain, such simpleand hard lesson thattake all of one's attentionfor one entire morningto recount the lostand how it was lost
they are just cards
but they are mine
i think i might have
a note or two
no importance to the world
who has them now
or does it lie in some streetran over by cars multiple timesshreddedunnoticed?
Yes, I lost my wallet this morning. I was really upset earlier, but I'm feeling better. Everything is replaceable, though one of the objects is gonna cost me. I don't think I have notes in there except maybe someone's phone number. Lesson learned -- never carry all my cards ever again. And I think I need a wallet clip.
Interestingly, I was far more upset back when my modem had problems than this lost. Still, I hope neither never happens again!
