Treasure Box

Written by: Olorunsogo David

An elixir in my treasure box
The thought to increase my 
My most valuable treasure it 
would be
Spend my whole time
Adoring my jewel of chime
Anxious as a bird
Trying pecking the bottled corn
Immortality it holds
Yet t'will not erase sorrow
Priceless it may be
Never for me to auction
Will watch the pill of life
Till life is out of me
