~ All That Glitters ~



Be careful, for all that glitters,
as the saying goes, is not gold!
Ask yourself, will it warm your heart,
when it feels lonely or controlled.


Riches can be quite nice,
are you willing to pay the price?
Fortune and fame, can give you a name,
the question is, will you be the same?


What is of more value to you?
What is important in your view?
Happiness can't be bought with wealth,
neither can it buy you, good health!


Do you see life as a duty,
or with eyes full of beauty?
Will you see it the same,
if you have too much gain?


Are you going for the gold,
how far are you willing to go?
Will it keep you from growing old,
are you willing to sell your soul?


I want to see gold in the sunrise,
and in the twinkle of your eyes.
Friends are more precious than gold,
with them you will never grow cold.


I want to see gold in the sunset,
I don't want to live with regret.
I want to see fields of golden grain.
I want to be free, to dance in the rain!

The only gold that I'll ever see will be when I see my last sunset. And I don't have to worry about wealth. Some good positive thoughts in this poem Jan. Maybe it will inspire me to write. LOL. God bless.
Live today as if it were your last, for tomorrow it will be your past, but live it with peace in mind, joy to find, and for God divine!

We all need inspiration at times, Dear Steve.
I feel honored to be able to inspire you. It seems that others at NetHugs
could also use some inspiration. I know that at times I sure do need something
to inspire me! You have inspired me, more than once!
