The Windows of My Soul: The Marketplace (#212)

What will you buy
At the marketplace
This teeming bazaar
Of life?

~ a loaf of bread
~ a ring of brass
~ a jug of wine
~ a touch of class

Or will you buy
Into the myth
There is no other way
To grow rich?

~ a loaf of jewels
~ a ring of control
~ a jug of power
~ a touch of cruel

And what will you buy
To nourish your soul
To bring you contentment
An inner joy?

~ a loaf of peace
~ a ring of love
~ a jug of courage
~ and tolerance

What will you buy?
