If I Were Gold

If I were Gold
I wonder my worth

Before men alike

Probably I’d be so cherished by them so much.



If I were gold

I would definitely be so precious

Compared by Men for superiority

And worn so gallantly by all around.



If I were gold

I wonder the worth of carat

I’d be by now

A twenty-four carat, or one less pure







If I were gold

I’d definitely by found all around the world

Doing my best piece

And decorating the best amongst the best.



If I were gold

I’d probably be a must for the high and mighty

And also a source of quarrel amongst them

‘Cos non-would be more content with me around.



If I were gold

I wonder how priced I’d be

And probably kept in the strongest safe

And most probably in the choicest Swiss bank.



If I were gold

I’d probably be worn by Men of class

While still adorning some choicest parts of the body

And being priced by all I come in contact with



If I were gold

No matter how rigorous it takes to make me pure

And how costly it is to acquire me around

I’d definitely put a simile on faces all over the world.



If I were gold

No matter how tarnished and tainted I may be

I’d still find a place in the hearts of all so dear

And be a pride to many anyway
