You Don’t Own That – 4th December 2021

The house and pool, a shiny car
There’s a driving need we must
We think these define who we are
But our lives are held in trust*
We may fight together or alone
But we are looking at it wrong
*So what is it that we own?
Just our lives and not for long*

*Almost direct quotes from Marcus Aurelius. Inspired by the 4th December entry of the Daily Stoic.
