What do you have in your hands?he asked

I have nothing,i said

what do you have to your name?he asked

I have nothing,i said

what do you hold in your hands?he asked again

I told you i have nothing,i semi-screamed with impatience

what do you have in your hands?he asked in painful calmness

I held back the steady stream of tears

looked into his clear eyes

full of so much compassion and said

in a voice so shaky

‘I don’t know’

With a measure of affection unknown

he whispered back

‘You have Now,

its the only wealth you will ever have

your Now is your perfect shot at everything.
