When most people think of riches

They think of the shine of gold

Of the softness of silk

Maybe the quality of fresh bread and milk.

But even, when I am presented with a pearl

Coming from the crystal depths of the sea

Riches are not gold, silver, or the smallest pearls

Friendship and love is what I see.

Material objects are already made

And can be destroyed all together.

But the love of family, or the joy of friendship

Can last for the limits of forever.

Forever is a long time

And gems or metals can’t last that whole time.

But friendship, love, that’s what matters

If we concentrate on those values

We can live thorough time.
