A million……. Can it really be measured?
Can we truly put a price on such a precious treasure?
I mean, surely, not even diamonds and gold can even begin to put value on secrets never told,
secrets of “I hate you now but I will love you eternally”,
secrets of “I cannot provide right now but I would gladly die for you”,
Bound by life’s chains to each other physically, emotionally, mentally.
Caring for you limitless, daily wishing I could shoulder what you went through,
Salty rivers that we have both had to endure, hard knocks forcing the mind’s eye to question, “what is false and what is true?”
When that bell tolls and we find it difficult to even fake a smile
Body and soul aching like you have been kicked up and down.
Handling responsibilities given to a few and a few can handle,
Job well done
So, a million, what is it worth?
Lives lost for far less than that but that is not the worst,
friends knifing you in the back , and you never thought ,
Family is the only constant and they got your back!
So I say to you, protect love
Cherish family and safeguard your friends
Those are the only things that have true worth
You live and love, family been there for you since birth
