Find Treasures For the Fresh Water River

years of mining my heart
and i have nothing to show
toiled in soil
exposure to toxins and poisons
mythical cities based in truths
my treasure has been revealed
searching and working
for my mythical city of gold
search turns to tragedy
less than ten have gone
still, searching….
the fresh water weaving
like bearded deltas
through poor soil
we are still in tangled jungles
to provide for the fresh water river
treasures haven’t been found
treasures haven’t been found
we are a wretched crew
yet we trust one another
even though we are nameless,
we have trust
we search, and toil
in the soil of earth’s crust
we are not concerned with people or cultures
we have to find our treasures
they can’t be far
we are not archeologists
or scientists
we do not save
only search
for our treasures we work, years have gone
and we keep searching
