A Haiku - Portion Control

Wanting what you get....

Better some than none. Better none than some.

Acceptable amounts of everything....

Portion control fits.

Well suited to life's desires.

Little sparks, big fires.


If "there must needs be moderation in all things," then a moderate amount of what we gather, allows adequate room for all we need. Overdoing, over-indulgence, force something else to be left out, even lost. "Moderation in all things" does not deny tasting life, it cautions against too much of too little.

There must always be some moderation in life. That way when we can get some of life's good things we appreciate it because all good things come to those who wait and not to those who grab and take.
