Yesterdays Treasure



Every now and then I am left with a conundrum 
For which to choose from, a deliberation to ponder 


I would have settled for yesterdays dampen treasures 
Had it been yesterday you offered it to me 


And even though a lot more gold mines, are out 
Mine for my price held, will still remain high for you 


And thus in the value I keep, for you to know 
What I have to give in values I own 


There is always the issue of enlightenment 
After one has donned the coat to know alternatives 


Like if a salt water fish is to 
Find and discover a fresh water swim 


I would not lie to you and say I swear 
With fingers crossed at my back twitching 


With a look to the side, to say that there are no prey 
I have seen bigger ones, in these here fresh waters to tremble 


Thirst is more known in this island of golden sand 
Where the sun sits bright as paradise on earth 


But it is less crowded in ways 
And more value it holds to treasure, to own 


I would have settled for yesterdays treasures 
Had it been yesterday you offered it to me

  5. Truth in your words. Is the opposite also true? Are tomorrow's treasures rejected today because we don't yet see the value?

  6. Wonderful words, the Sewin is such a fish, like the Salmon it returns to the fresh water after a life at sea.
