Yours Alone

Proverbs 5:15-17

Drink water from your own cistern and fresh water from you own well. Should your springs be dispersed abroad, streams of water in the streets? Let them yours alone and not for strangers with you.


It is good to share, yes that is true, but not entirely so

for there are things which you posses that you should never let go

things that should remain your own

are best enjoyed by you alone


There are those who are less aware

of consequences suffered by those who share

those who share do so in vain

for sharing invites needless pain


Sharing with strangers is the thief of fun

I speak honestly for such I have done

seeking to capture an impossible prize

ignoring the facts before my eyes


It’s yours keep it do not give it away

it’s no one else’s please don’t try another way

enjoy what’s yours all on your own

for it belongs to you alone
