Because You Wear Gold - Poem by Frank Bana

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.

    I don't think i got the meaning.
    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
