You Couldnt Buy

You could purchase a pair of teeth; but you couldn't buy their scintillating shine,

You could purchase a handsome tiger; but you couldn't buy his thunderous growl,

You could purchase a glamorous rose; but you couldn't buy its mesmerizing redolence,

You could purchase the entire valley; but you couldn't buy its unfathomable depth,

You could purchase a mammoth slab of ice; but you couldn't buy its frozen coolness,

You could purchase sprawling territories of sand; but you couldn't buy their sweltering heat,

You could purchase a cluster of opalescent striped nightingales; but you couldn't buy their enchanting voice,

You could purchase boundless meadows of grass; but you couldn't buy the coat of
dew drops glistening on their surface,

You could purchase the sapphire blue dolphin; but you couldn't buy its rollicking leap,

You could purchase dexterously sculptured paintings; but you couldn't buy the artists mind,

You could purchase the colossal lake; but you couldn't buy the fish proliferating inside; every unleashing second,

You could purchase a pair of eyes from the eyebank; but you couldn't buy their
emphatic rays,

You could purchase knotted fingers; but you couldn't buy the things they wrote,

You could purchase a sparkling jewel; but you couldn't buy the impact that it had on your destiny,

You could purchase a swanky car; but you couldn't buy the speeds at which it traversed,

You could purchase a slave; but you couldn't buy the uninhibited freedom of
his thoughts,
You could purchase a woman; but you couldn't buy the love residing deep in her conscience,

You could purchase an idol of God; but you couldn't buy the omnipotent power it
was capable of executing,

And you could purchase a heart; but you simply couldn't buy its violently palpitating beats; the overwhelming tenacity it had to grant new life.
