Treasure Map

 In search of treasure, we look for a map

A guide to riches fulfilled

An outline to lead us, a smooth road to travel

A sketch for happiness to yield

 

We search high to the heavens and low to the earth

For reasons to quiet our mind

We look near to friends and far to religion

For explanations and answers to find

 

Our path can be difficult and filled with much pain

As we seek away from our heart

A route void of aim, light or guidance

And back to the beginning we start

 

So we gather our strength and give try again

And begin to roll with the tide

The treasure we seek isn’t high, low, near or far

But in us, resting gently inside
