One Who Keeps


One Who Keeps

When hunger for the dollar lures one in
And power is the pinnacle to reach,
All bantering with God won’t get you there,
What is the force that one must soon beseech?

Truth wins all quarrels, divvies out the pain
Of which the realization armies preach
Is wisdom with a hook that plucks the brain
Unto the docile plumage of the leach

That sucks until the capillaries squeak
And nestles unbeknownst to those who care
Upon the hearts of loneliness and fear
Where emptiness becomes what one must share

Many a lion roams the jungle’s depths
And prances on the planes of sweet release,
But only those who sell their soul can know
The hunger of a lion without teeth

Look deep within and know the open rose,
The fragrance bursting sweet with inner peace
A thousand times the worth of one who has
A million times the joy of one who keeps.
