Nothing is genuine ,

Here, on Earth.

It won’t ever endure.

The rust, tarnish,

And decay

are ever present.

So I do not value

any of these trinkets,

I accumulate along the way.

I hope for real jewels

in my future

that time will not alter,

damage or turn.

Tis faith alone that I go on,

for these treasures,

I cannot see.

But all the same

I hope they are there

waiting for me.
