THE ONLY THING THAT MATTERS

Search the world
for your treasures,
lap up luxury, 
fondle greed, 
eschew the lowly
and humble
while your ego
struts naked before
a disdainful world.

But I would give up
Shakespeare's crown
and the touch of Midas
to seek the only thing
that matters-- to be
in God's good grace.
