You have what you’re not given
To wanting too much to keep,

Which has two categories—
That which you know you don’t want

All that badly, and that which
Would devastate you to lose

But you don’t worry about
Since you’ve never felt its loss.

Either way, it’s not your choice.
You just have to try to choose.

That’s the true torture of it—
The necessary pretense

Of choice where there is no choice.
You have what you’re not given.
