For Example: love, art, fashion, friendship and etc.


While precious gold is refined,
leaving behind the scummy dross;
so the distant past hangs around
my bent neck like an albatross.

Customs and doctrines of yore,
while precious gold is refined,
taught by people I came to respect,
its power inextricably bind.

I bravely tug at rusty nails
which the coffin of my life impale.
While precious gold is refined,
my soul will never be for sale.

Not all lessons learned, I askance.
The lesson to strive to be kind,
bequeathed to next generations,
while precious gold is refined.
