- What Matters
When most people think of riches
They think of the shine of gold
Of the softness of silk
Maybe the quality of fresh bread and milk.
But even, when I am presented with a pearl
Coming from the crystal depths of the sea
Riches are not gold, silver, or the smallest pearls
Friendship and love is what I see.
Material objects are already made
And can be destroyed all together.
But the love of family, or the joy of friendship
Can last for the limits of forever.
Forever is a long time
And gems or metals can’t last that whole time.
But friendship, love, that’s what matters
If we concentrate on those values
We can live thorough time.
