A Bag of Diamonds

A Bag of Diamonds

a bag of diamonds was left on the step
a gift that was given to pay off a debt
what could it have been – a debt that was owed?
nothing remembered – perhaps long ago?

the diamonds were rough
they looked just like stones
yet the value concealed
could pay off our loans

for practical purposes, where to begin?
save them for the future or debt-free begin?
begin a new way to live, to live without debt
free from the stresses and worries we’ve kept

feeling into that prospect, it is easy to know
the diamonds were gifted so we would soon know
that to live without debt, to be in the flow
to love what we have, is the best way to go
