The Inventory

When the shelves are bare,
with nothing left to be sold,
something has been missed.

When my calendar is empty,
with no friends to be found,
something within is amiss.

If there’s too much to stock,
and the storeroom is full,
something needs to be altered.

If all my stories speak of me,
and the listeners tend to drift,
something within has faltered.

Review the day.
Check the motive.
Amend the hurt.

When the inventory is done,
with honesty and humility,
peacefulness is sure to follow.
