An untitled poem: inspired by the line "it takes gravy to carry a ball or a bone"

It takes gravy to carry
a ball
or a bone

I wish
I never
wondered such things

of times and places
so far away
not necessarily necessity

To find
out of curiousity
what was left behind

did really we have to
not be happy
with what we got

it's practically gravy
for the efforts
these efforts

for the sake of appreciation
of the ways
of it all

Get used
to seeking
the ways of the best

leaning towards certainity
of what
is the best

All just gravy
to find
the rightful pursuits

Remember one thing
when the worst of days
come your way

that it is but gravy
to find it
