Rich

Tell me who is richer
The man with ten thousand
Possessions who can’t
Fathom tranquility, searching
To bolster his collection,
Disregarding ability actualized
In desires minimized, searching
For nothing more than a hollow path to cope.
Bastardizing hope, twisted scope.

Or the man without. Within. Inverting wisdom,
Preserving what has never been done,
Acting as one, loving through all,
Acknowledging and acting upon the rift
Separating sunrises and pay raises. Praises,
Spaces and innocuous faces
All pass around him without effect
Except to inspire fire fueling
Footsteps filled with simple solidarity.

An acuity exists.
An effort persists.

The whispering road paved with stars to the rich.

  1. Hey Dave,

    I just read all your submissions going back to 2014. It satisfied my goal of cleaning up my inbox and connecting back with you. I’m glad to see you’re still writing.

    Are you in Spokane still? I’ll be there this summer and would love to catch up. Let me know!
