In search of treasure #WTFOW
While living life each day,
Something seemed missing.
Nothing good came my way,
I felt I had achieved nothing.
On a journey I set out,
To find the treasures that I’d missed so far.
For I didn’t know what my life was about,
I looked out for my guiding star
Throughout the journey I searched,
But I found nothing on my way.
The sun’s heat left me scorched,
And then I felt life going away.
And then in those difficult moments,
I remembered the treasures I had.
The memories came back in fragments,
And life didn’t seem so bad.
There were so many things,
That I could do.
I was given wings,
To fly high and pass through.
I had the warmth of love,
Which my loved ones gave.
But I was so busy looking above,
To the world’s riches, I’d become a slave.
I could still walk back,
Though the journey would be long.
Nothing I did lack,
The treasures were with me all along.
I am taking part in The Write Tribe Festival of Words #6.
