Five And A Dime May Make Time


Five and a Dime might give ya time
but not

ten seconds
of love
compassion
or joy

Five and a Dime might be fine

might save time
...............in effort

but will not fill the coffers
of even a day
in your "essence of time" notebook
nor lend you the startling triumph
of true struggle

where you learn first hand
...like planting your first garden and watching it grow

of happiness
with its hidden wonder...its gem-ish truth

true happiness has nothing what so ever to do...with five and a dime
and it is never held captive
....by time
