I’ve been away too long
Working on things that didn’t matter
I let my priorities fly and scatter

Now I’m back
Back to the place where things really matter
Where my heart resides
And my feelings don’t need to hide

That other place is so funny
All about money
Nothing that really matters

Here is the place for me
Here is the place where my thoughts
Can run free

There ain’t no money in poetry
I don’t care
That’s fine by me!
