She stayed home
from Europe,
twenty in-laws
on the trip,
it wasn’t
worth it.
A thing I understand,
much as I want
to travel.
Sometimes the price
is high to pay.
It’s something
I’m trying
to learn –
there are so many
things I’m studying.
How much is it worth
to me to get what.
They say the scales
are my symbol,
but I don’t seem
to be that adept
at weighing
things against
each other.
Rocks and gold,
