How much do you really need… Song 264

A box appears in front of me. I reach out to touch it. The wind outside starts to howl, and I hear voices.

“These riches can be yours.” The wind whispered.

“You can be king.” Another voice breathed into my ears.

I open the box. Gold coins, marked with some sort of curse. Nothing comes for free and I know what I have to offer in trade. I value it far more than gold. Much less cursed gold. Still the wind tries to convince me. But I know, money isn’t everything. In the blink of an eye, or the flip of a coin, it could all be gone and I will have lost the only thing I value.

The voices grow louder and more insistent. The wind is almost deafening. A crash of lightning blinds me. I take the box to the window of the tower. I whisper “no.”. I empty the box onto the rocks below…

Song 264: “Coin of Fate”

Money isn’t everything
How much do you really need

With a flip of the coin of fate
It could all go away
It could all go away

A healthy soul is more important
You’ll have everything you need

With a flip of the coin of fate
It could all go away
It could all go away

With a flip of the coin of fate
It could all go away
It could all go away
