What is Gold?

What is Gold?

what is gold?
can it be bought and sold?
what is it we’ve been told?
can it be melted? poured into a mould?

is this the definition we choose to hold?
or is that a perception that is simply old?

what is a golden light?
why name it the Golden Rule?
who is that golden child?
what was the Golden Age?
when are our golden years?
what is the golden mean?
the golden ratio?

representing freedom
desirable, best

time to re-define
is gold not golden?
a message is beholden
refined, re-defined, bold
this, the true meaning of gold
