Gold

 

You aren't dead or defective

Its alive in there

That heart of gold

and this life is worth living


Life will wack you on the head

like a spoon to an egg

and your yolk will run

out of all the cracks


Even as you scramble

to put yourself back together again

Sticky gold is everywhere

and your shell is irreparable


You must learn 

to purposefully dig 

spoonful after spoonful

and offer it willingly


Fill those around you

but first refill your cup

Dont be stingy

with your selfishness


Gather up the venom and violence

that you have been given

and turn it into violets and virtue

Be an alchemist


Be a philanthropist  

The gold you make of yourself 

is the gift you give 

to us
