Weed out the truth
from a puzzle of riddles;
be keen as you do 
to discover the answers.
Keep in mind that dosage
is different for each:
do not overwhelm
what’s supposed to be meek.

Bliss is a treasure
that can be felt 
but not touched;
the same goes true
with wisdom and love.
Your pockets may be filled
with aurums and mints:
they can never purchase
a gift that’s free.

Prayers are answered,
not all with a “yes”.
Sometimes it ends
with a “no” or “in time”.
All voices are heard
as they whisper, “Amen”;
just be prudent
to wait for your turn.
