life: acoustic & amplified

poetry, quotes & thoughts about life


Whoever you meet

probably has treasure

hidden within,

riches from God

they have buried

in fear.

Those of whom you disapprove—

you notice their annoying,

self-serving behavior,

but do you notice

the treasure? Do you

notice the fear?

Fear of what is demanded,

fear of being inadequate,

of being judged, of being used?

Everyone you meet

is a nervous treasure chest

searching for their own key.

What can you do

to treasure the treasure,

to steady their hand?
