Gains Vs Loses


 We work to gain all our lives

What we lose, we never highlight

 Acquired skills make you bright

Helps you scale the heights with might


Learn to walk, nobody bothers to carry you about

Learn to drive and you no longer walk

And miss the friends that were part of your walk


Get a job and lose your freedom

Build a house and be rooted to a spot


 Count your gains and your loses pile up

You reach a stage when nothing matters much

 Gains no longer hold their charm

But loses you shall recount

Gains you worked for all your life

 Loses you cherish more in the sunset of your life
