Fisherman’s Treasure


Fisherman’s Treasure
By: Monica Renata
As he sat upon the rocky beach
Holding on to his precious gem
He glanced at it one last time
Before a.m. turned to p.m.
Overwhelmed with emotions
Inside he feels like he has died
Yet he tries to hold on to the memories made
He tries hard not to cry
But in his instance of sorry
He decided to throw the gem away
Even though it was beautiful and shined so brightly
He no longer wanted it around his face
So deep down in the ocean blue
The gem should shine no more
Covered by endless sediment
As it landed on the ocean floor
A precious gem that once had value
Has value no more
Sitting patiently waiting to be found
On that lonely ocean floor
As he sat upon the rocky beach
Holding nothing in his hands
He glanced at the open water once more
Before a.m. turned to p.m.
Overwhelmed with emotions
In search of something he thought he would never find
He wants to find something special
You can see it in his eyes
And in his instance of sorrow
You can see determination on his face
He wants to find his precious
And today he cannot wait
So deep down in the ocean blue
Until his body can be seen no more
Covered by endless ocean waters
He lands on the ocean floor
A precious gem that once had value
Has value once again
And this time it shines much brighter
Than when it was in the other man’s hands
Fisherman’s treasure
A value once more restored
Be careful what you throw in the waters
For when you want again it will be there no more
 Don’t throw away something that you always wanted to keep” -Monica Renata
