The sun is warm
But the wind is cold
The water, it glistens
All the while, I grow old
I always search for treasure
But I’ve never found the gold

Maybe it’s not the reward to envy
For within the hunt is where the bulk unfolds
Life’s lessons most often discovered
Not something bought or sold
No. Scars and badges must be earned
Stories belong to the brave and the bold

A copycat will never be happy
We only fit right in our own mold

True wealth is hardship and suffering
Each of which–mysteries and secrets hold
We would learn the scope and truth of heart ache
If all of humanity was polled

Intricate, delicate — humankind’s status
Like the careful deliberate process of a cigarette rolled
I think we miss every good thing
When ‘the quick and the easy’ is for what we’ve bowled
This empathy gained, is a tremendous, invaluable bounty
And the learning of it, should constantly be told
