Fools gold

Fools gold

 

This will take some digging to understand.

some things are planned

 

some are golden opportunities

some are fools gold

 

or worse real gold, however...

just the tiniest dip to unfold

 

when tarnished and worn

rust, corrosion and confusion lie beneath.

 

No real hallmark

As in no hallmark at all

 

How easy it is we fall

Fair… not fair at all

 

Luck is not a word to use

To say you were lucky when abused

 

The luck is not a golden band

Upon your finger, before you understand

 

That gold was only there for fools

They sadly fall for… then abused

 

Without the hope of respite

For them just days and days of spite

 

Vindictiveness the tarnish

Cruelty the wear

 

Until at last, you understand

What was never there!

Moon.girl I read and read some more
to see such wonders outside my door
I need no travel to travel far
from where I am to where you are.

Your wisdom is not superfluous
Your words opaque no longer
Transparency is impossible to see
Less otherwise it would not be

Such beautiful pretty hands.....Noor and softness.

Gold or no gold, everything is a myth. Reality is just one....and my wise friend you know the answer to this one.

What you see isn't real, what is real cant be seen, what is hidden is beautiful, what is beautiful is hidden.

My wise friend Po, we have wisdom overdose...give us some mirth and laughter. That smile is gold, that happiness is gold and desires are but fools gold.

Wise!!
