The Priceless Gifts

You may have a glamorous life
With everything in the world
Fake friends all around you,
And even have the perfect girl.

You may have a top class job
And drive a flashy car
Own a mansion on the beach
With a garden stretched out far

You may dine at expensive restaurants
Feeling like a famous celebrity
And seem so intelligent
Being all sarcastic n witty.

You may have a huge ego
By boasting about it all
And make everyone around you
Feel unimportant and small.

But one thing you’ll never have,
Something so pure n true
Is real love and friendship
That no one has shown to you

See coz you live in this dream world
Where nothing seems to go wrong
But one day when it all crashes down
You will sadly be all alone

Then you will learn something
That will be all new to you
When days are really dark
Your “friends” will be few

And you will finally realize something
You never did in a while
That the best gifts in the world
Are something that money can never buy

    Very well said and written! Now I see my, dear friend, why you were touched by my two poems today! Yes, those people you describe think important but without love are nothing! Thank you!
