Hoarder’s Folly

Everything given is taken away,
This is what life’s about;
Many can face this with firm belief,
Others are filled with doubt

So stacking up things brings us comfort, perhaps,
If the things that matter most —
But much that we hoard will seem useless and vain
When we are but
A ghost
