We want, things we see of beauty are bought and gathered,

Valued by us are all these things of material, made up things.

Collect them as we grow, throughout our lives they are part of us,

We call them antiques, valuable items of great worth and money.

Stones of different names and types, a price is made, what’s of greatness,

Diamonds, rubies, and other gems, who was to say they are so important.

Material things to the world bring certain types of happiness, for how long,

To some these objects define who they are, people sitting up high or below the poor.

Always told over a lifetime that we can’t take it with us,

All of these earthly things, to heaven none can we bring.
