A RIDDLE

A RIDDLE


What is the thing that its value in 
Millions of dollars we count
And
There is enough, for everyone
To go round? 

That its price never 
Falls low,
Each time the mighty dollar
Receives a blow?

That easily across the borders
Could be fared 
Without declaring it, but never being
Scared?

That in luggage we need it 
Never put
But 
Easily can be transported, anywhere, 
On foot? 

If “knowledge” is not the answer you 
Have given
Then
Do not worry, for you easily are  
Forgiven!

    Have given Then Do not worry, for you easily are Forgiven! Here is the paradox of philosophical thought and Christian contexts. Great!

    True, and no one can rob it from you. I guess we gather the drops from this vast Ocean every day every minute every second until we hear our last call. Your poem awoke my mind. Thank you.

    And according to Socrates, my great-great-great...grand father, the only thing we carry on to the next world, apart from our actions, of course! Thank you very much!

    It's good to have that knowledge, a very incredible thing to have, a wonderful possession to carry! I hope to always hold this thing for all my life, to have knowledge is a glorious thing, and your poem so illustriously talks about the possession of it! We all need our share, and we each have a certain amount of it and will only increase our amount throughout life! This is a masterful piece my friend! What a fantastic poem, Great Work!!
