What is my most prized possession?

I find that an empty and pointless question

As I have nothing to leave those in my succession

But a lifelong struggle with mild depression

Which will intensify with the progression

Of life’s responsibilities and the subsequent suppression

Of creative outlets and freedom of expression

As with my job- which I speak of with discretion

Though it’s been wrought with wage and work rule concessions

And a lifestyle not of a typical convention

I have a somewhat predictable confession

With the knowledge that children are people and not possessions 

I am without an answer to this question

Because I have no prized possessions
