Cheques & Balanced

by Austin Gadson

Rich to me means freedom
The richness of sovereignty in mind and in motion
The freedom to feel each emotion I come with
Wrapped in the transparency of plastic

Rich to me is everlasting
A ravine that flows
A pleasure that quenches the soul

The privilege of choice
Brings to me what I rejoice

Bounded by the constriction of the public eye
Indebted to the cost of the likes of you and I

I am rich in ways that are unspoken
In ways that leave me with more than just a lonely token.
