My Gold

 

Fools gold is a misnomer

I feel fairly certain

The gold we claim for our own

Without thought to its purity

Is exactly what we need it to be at that moment

And without another’s eyesight

And judgment

The gold remains

Perhaps it’s only our desire

To please others

That reveals us as fools
