The Sum

The Sum


We are capable of love

And then we hate

We build

And then we destroy

We make money

And then we spend it

We trick ourselves into thinking we are getting ahead

But for every nickel made, a nickel is spent.

There are those of us who keep trying, striving to make things better for all.

There are those of us who only try to make things worse.







We are born

And we die

The net sum to it all?


Or nothing.




About timkeen40

When I was seven, I opened one of those little Golden Books (Lassie) and started copying the words down on paper and it set my soul on fire. I have been writing ever since. I don't know where this is going but I invite you along on the journey.

    For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. One of the laws of matter. So you’re right. But I’m still gonna try, Tim. I’m still gonna try. 🙂

      By no means do I think there is reason to not try. I just make the point that all things we do add up to even. The human spirit is one that cannot be quantified and it must endure.

    We have to make a choice what we do in life my friend, but it is not what we take with us that matters, but what we leave behind. 🙂 ❤
