Still Your Treasure
a poem by The Overlord Bear/Jem De Ocampo
Why entrust to me these scraps
When they are your treasures?
I already have my own, and they do not blend with yours.
My treasures are a burden to me too
Just like yours are to you
But they are the best burdens we can have
Even with the distance between us two.
And even then, if the heavens would change mine
I would let my treasure be changed
And my grumbling humiliated.
Maybe your scraps would be my treasure too
But it will always be your treasure
Whether shared or not
So trust in the miracle
That makes who you truly are.
