Response to 36 Life Changing Poems Everyone Should Read:
The art of losing isn’t hard to master; so many things seem filled with the intent to be lost that their loss is no disaster. Lose something every day. Accept the fluster of lost door keys, the hour badly spent. The art of losing isn’t hard to master. Then practice losing farther, losing faster: places, and names, and where it was you meant to travel. None of these will bring disaster. I lost my mother’s watch. And look! my last, or next-to-last, of three loved houses went. The art of losing isn’t hard to master. I lost two cities, lovely ones. And, vaster, some realms I owned, two rivers, a continent. I miss them, but it wasn’t a disaster. —Even losing you (the joking voice, a gesture I love) I shan’t have lied. It’s evident the art of losing’s not too hard to master though it may look like (Write it!) like disaster. - Elizabeth Bishop
Bahaha. Patong, one of the most beautiful beaches. Hahaha. So you haven’t been, I take. I don’t advise it either. If you are around there, try Ao Nang, Koh Lipe, easily reached but less tourist-ish, less rubbish, less loud bunch of drunk people, less prostitution and so on.
