A Pearl

Seek your bliss, yes climb
But the mountaintop has no meaning
Without the valley below –
Wreathed all in shadowy confusion
And where else can one go when on high
But down?
Seek instead then for a deeper contentment
One at home on high or in the depths of despair
A pearl left behind by the giddy tide
A sense of worth untouched
By the senseless turnings of a life beyond control
