The Price


There’s the price for beauty of one’s heart
And the price of beauty of one’s soul
There’s the price of beauty for one’s body
And there’s the price for one's eternal goal

There’s a price for integrity
And a price for one’s domain
There’s a price for what we say, at all
Those things that change us the same

There’s a price to have loved-and-lost
But oh the untold value; it’s true
We often learn~ of what we want
From mistakes, never repeat 'a new'

So there’s a price for each truth
Some pay dear~ with their lives
There’s a price for good health
And a price for good food
There’s a price for our very thoughts
Aspects motivating and affecting our mood

There’s a price to be alone
And a price to be apart
There’s a price for Love and hate
But also jealousy of from the heart

For every season~ there is a time
For every purpose there is a tool
For every out-come there is a price
For every winner~ there is a fool

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
