trashed away as waste
becomes needed.

I'm always spending time looking for things I've misplaced, possibly because I didn't realise I'd need them again soon. These few words spoke to me.

Read it twice.Understood it (or at least i think i did) the second time.

Call me crazy, but I thought when I first clicked over that you were literally talking to me. Seems like the title of your piece was exactly how I was feeling today.

Now this really spoke to me, cos i'm always trashing things away and then bingo...


you really know the art of saying it with a few words...

You never know what you have (or need in this case) until it's gone; wise words said again and again.

so true, be careful what you throw away..., there's a good environmental message in there too

This poem shows precisely why I think twice (perhaps more) when I want to throw something away. Great job! :)
