Yes, I Can Handle It

Roses?
I will send some,
Tell me you need them,
when they are fresh,
I will send you some.
Money?
Yes, I have some.
I have a huge allowance in CD,
And I earned some while trying to get my Ph. D.
Yes, I have some!
Love?
I have it secured.
Let me live,
Trust my belief,
I have it secured.
Friends?
Yes, I enjoy many.
You come in different shapes and sizes,
I enjoy offering you all kinds of prizes.
Yes, I enjoy many.
Men?
Yes, I adore some,
Especially when they have the style
To keep me interested for a while.
Yes, I adore some.
Pain?
Of course, I get some at times,
I feel nil shame to tell it,
I have zero desires to expel it,
And I do get some at times.
Loses?
I can handle it,
If it is never meant to be mine,
I shall feel just FINE.
Yes, I can handle it.

Born with two hands to let go
Never to carry anchors as you know
To hold on to these things we cannot possess
It is much relieving for the Soul to have its rest
As the Soul knows the path from before
Just open your eyes and it will open the door

enjoy Jingle(+)

7 "chunks" to your set, really interesting. You should make a paper heptagon and put each part on a side. Roll it/ Read it when you are feeling blue.
