For Sale - One Life - Used

I have something to sell
Something I have used for many years
Iíve had it through the good times
And Iíve had it through the tears

Iím not sure how much itís worth
I know Iíll miss it when itís gone
I loved it when I was right
I loved it more when I was wrong

Iíve had it as long as I can remember
It is certainly torn and tattered
There are some breaks and there are some stains
And at times itís been beaten and battered

The memories with it have been sweet and sour
But memories donít always last
I have shared it with many people
Most of whom have now passed

If you think you may be interested
Just respond to me with a text
I have been the only owner
But you may be the next

Iím sorry, I have changed my mind
I have decided not to sell
I think that I will just throw it away
Or maybe send it straight to Hell

Author's Note
Was just listening to a sad song I had not heard in a long time, and the idea came. †Took less than an hour to write. †Could be better if I would have put more time into it. †Just haven't put anything out in a while and since I felt okay with the beginning, middle, and end, just decided to post it. †Thank you for reading.
