True Worth

A ring caught my eye
i didn’t walk by
looking so unique

One of a kind
In my mind
like some kind of freak

cast with 1000s more
pedaled like a whore
what is it that I seek?

the meaning within
seems pretty thin
it makes me weak

forget that ring
it won’t make you sing
i haven’t killed the mystique

the curled metal band
from the garage wasn’t planned
it is what you seek

the flowers made from screen
cannot be unseen
it is from where i speak

adjust your direction
said with nothing but affection
all is not oblique

true internal worth
you’ll have to unearth
your creation, no boutique.
