What matters, is what the gold
puts in the soul,
not what it buys.
The riches that go inside
to the inner reaches of the heart ,
are from some other art:
wisdom, gratitude, forbearance, build the soul;
in the end, the soul is all
that goes over to the other side.
The soul is where the fortune and the future reside.
Crossing over is a short, lonely journey;
on the other side is company.
