A poem from 'Choice for Teenagers'

Things That Cannot Be Bought.

I saw a man, he had a coat
Like gold it shone so clear
I asked him where he bought it
And had it cost him dear?
'You cannot buy a coat like this’
He replied to me
'It is called Courage
But it did not come free
I went through a field of pain
I got to the other side
I had no one to help me
And no horse for me to ride'

I saw a man with a hat
It looked like a silver moon
I asked him where he bought it
And could I get one soon?
'You cannot buy a hat like this’
He replied to me
‘It is called Kindness
And it did not come free
I helped one who was lost
And one who could not walk
One who had no food or drink
And one too ill to talk’

I saw a man with shiny boots
Strong, light - as if a featherI asked him where he bought them
He said he hadn't - ever
‘You cannot buy boots like these’
He replied to me
‘They are called Endurance
And they did not come free
I had to work beyond my strength
And for so very long
No other there to lift the load
And no help came along’

I saw a man with a light, that shone out far and bright
I asked him where he bought it
As it beamed into the night
‘You cannot buy a light like this’
He replied to me
‘It is called eternal Hope
It was given to me - free
I had lost direction
I had battled to the end
I had coped when all was lost
For myself I had to fend

Then a light I suddenly saw
Upon my darkest day
I did not ask
It was just there
And then I found my way’

You have to find your Courage,
Kindness comes from very deep
Endurance needs much effort
Hope is yours - to keep
