A Poem by Christine Anne Shaw
"

muse is singing again, bringing me lyrics

"
some have found their silver
though others search for gold
some are hooked on passion
afraid they'll end up cold
.
and some are never satisfied
with a fear of growing old
yet most are quite content it seems
to find an anchor's solid hold
.
in the safety of a harbour
now surely that is priceless
those arms that long to hold you
far better than lost treasure
more valuable than gold

what a brilliant work!!! Very truly said that the valuables that we keep on collecting throughout our lives do not stay with us forever..the loved ones and their blessings is what immortal..even though one has everything but still no one to share those things with, he is the most poorest creature and what a pity to such a life.. Short poem giving a lesson as big as our lives :)

This poem describes varied attitudes towards people's inclinations as they advance in life. Some find complacency and contentment in whatever they have, while others always yearn to make it big in life. People value different things but the poet tells us that perhaps, connections and someone's love is what can keep your happy: You won't feel you're lacking something like the people searching for gold nor you'll feel you have settled for something since people are so complex you'll be busy trying to study them, discovering new things in that same person.

Thanks for sharing this poem :)

Just Amaze! It flowed like a song and with all the rhymes and lines.
The poem just read perfect and is a delight to read. Loved it!
Connections - the title is a apt one, there's nothing as valuable as relationships in this world. It's irreplaceable, invaluable, can't be bought, can't be traded and has to be always gained and earned through love, mutual trust, respect and care.

Thank you Chris for writing and sharing this beautiful piece of write!

Great subject and title.. Your muse is definitely singing as this sounded as it wrote itself with a knowing voice that flowed ever so smoothly. What matters the most can never be brought. Relationships are certainly more valuable than gold. Meaningful connection with someone is a precious gem. I loved this..
