TREASURE TO SOMEONE

© Vince Pawless 2019


Valuable is the way you comb your hair, like auburn spun. Valuable is the way you smile. Valuable is how you talk. Valuable is what I hear. Valuable is knowing the ropes. Valuable is knowing what not to do. Valuable is knowing how to make someone happy. Valuable is knowing how to make someone feel good. Sometimes it takes a little, sometimes it takes a lot. Valuable is knowing when to quit. Valuable is the way you talked that policeman outta that ticket. Bravo! 

Valuable is a measure. Valuable is a goal, but valuable is not an amount. Though valuable might just be a place. Perspective is valuable. Opinion is valuable to a point. Hell, like alcohol is a food to a point. Character is valuable. Knowing where yer going is valuable. Remembering where you’ve been is valuable. Having done it before is valuable. Ready to do it again is valuable. Valuable is peace of mind. Valuable is rare. Valuable is desired. 

Valuable is a tank of gas at the edge of the desert with an oasis in the shimmering distance.  Valuable is a woman to whom you can talk. Valuable is a pal when you need ‘em. Right place, right time. Valuable is knowing someone you like that runs a longhorn ranch. Valuable is liking someone that builds guitars. Valuable is being ahead of the game. Valuable is being in the game, maybe better that. Valuable is the view from the kitchen into the courtyard. Valuable is what you think you’re worth. You’re the first person that needs to be impressed. Valuable is a worthwhile endeavor, maybe two. Treasure is valuable. Service to need is valuable. 

If you’re valuable yer admired. If you’re valuable you might be expensive. If you’re valuable you are held dear. If you’re valuable you are cherished. If you’re valuable you are collected. If you’re valuable you are helpful. If you’re valuable you may be high priced. If you’re valuable you are highly prized. If you are valuable you are useful. If you’re valuable you are a nugget in the rough. If you’re valuable you are golden. If you’re valuable you are treasured by someone.

If you’re in the drivers seat,
all may not be the way it seems,
you might be on a tractor.
