I once yearned for physicality… then you came into my life
I began to learn of things that were so much more important

I used to think life was cruel… then you came into my life
Now I see what beauty the world can truly offer to humble man

I wanted a woman to have on my arm… then you came into my life
Now I see that a partner is someone to explore the world with

I only wanted money and fame… then you came into my life
Now the only thing I covet is something that cannot be bought

I thought possessions gave comfort… then you came into my life
Now I feel myself filled with peace by your mere presence

I believed that I was doomed to misery… then you came into my life
Now I see that, with some work, I can be normal once again
Ok this is the first piece I have tried to write without a rhyming scheme.

I can totally relate to this poem in alot of ways. Acheivieing goals, doing what makes you happy, being successful in what makes you happy, having a relationship, and so on and so on are all "things" that cannot be purchased but give a certain type of happiness and fulfillment. "I thought posessions gave comfort...then you came into my life".
