MY treasury

after forty years in a trusted storage
stowed away in that  far afield  home in Berlin 
regularly  and continuously replenished
with carefully written and read stories without ignorance 

a rusty antique- looking  metal box
with its damaged corroded  lock 
replaced by  an almost worn through rope
holding a huge content that shocks

the greatest possible shift
from an angel now in heaven
my lost but so touchable history
the most desirable and ultimate  gift 

I can feel my old paper sheets 
I can read  my  very own words 
I can learn about my own past
I can fulfill ALL my ultimate needs
