Frank Bana


Because you wear gold


Sun coming through
A straw hat
Once I had money
Now it is lost
Strange you should be so unconcerned.
Tell me where to look
I have nothing to put my love in for you
Some tell me you are beautiful
There are many things you may not notice
Because you wear gold.

    does it mean we judge person by their physical wealth?

    Hi Frank, I think money is not a big concern with people. It is there to survive. If someone only likes you for what you have they are not much of a person. Unless I read your poem wrong but this is how I interpreted your poem. Let me know. Excellent poem and take care. (Report) Reply
