The Shiny Penny

Don’t need the shiny penny

Don’t need the brightest star.

The quiet and reserved ones

Hold the greatest gifts by far.


Comparison is wasteful

A vain and losing thought

A soul remains a soul you see

It can’t be sold or bought


The throwaways

are diamonds

The crippled ones are gold

A heart remains a heart you see

No matter what you’re told


The eyes may tell a story

Of heartache and despair

A love remains a love you see

When life isn’t always fair


Forgiveness is the lesson

Wisdom, the gift untold

Remember in your deepest thoughts

That grace lies with the old
