    Concentration on the finer things in life,
    Sentimental jestures and a pure soul over fine wine.

    Life isnt about the curiosity of your diamond being zurchonian or pure,
    Life is taken a second each day and thank the Lord for giving each breath and asking for more.

    A creative focus on how you will live today,
    And picturing each segment molded like clay.

    The heavenly values are set into me,
    Far more than what people's measure believe.

    Your values can be far more as well,
    There's no price to purchase; priceless dont sell.

    Free of charge; no tax or fee,
    Your mind is yours; do as you please.

    Very very nice. I like this style...kinda like mine. :D

    "Keep hope alive" is what I get from this poem...because GOD gave it to us and only we can define it; not others.

    Nice read.

    :thanks: for sharing this inspiration with the Fam.
