Very well done, and an important lesson for all of us to remember.
This is elegant in its simplicity. I especially like the final stanza.
An excellent message. Enjoyed this.
Poignant poetry! You zeroed right in on one of the most common cases of 'faux gold'! Fame and fortune just doesn't make it in true fulfillment and satisfaction. Well said!!
The first verse is my favorite and it is o so true to think of the message here. Nice job with this! ^_^
How creative--I don't think I've read any others this week from the POV of a "glitterer" who knows they're not gold. I like the format of this poem, too--very well done!
I read this poem aloud and loved it. Excellent job!
Nicely done. I like your title.
A profound revelation told in poetic form. My favorite line: "The cost I paid
An eager slave" How true, how true. Thank-you for sharing.
Now I will be happy not to be the Editor's Choice for the week. :p
