Treasure Hunt

I started a long voyage

  In search of the hidden treasure…

With great courage and faith

  I traveled across the oceans

     But in vain…

With all my strength and patience

  I roamed all over the lands

    But in vain…

With all my intelligence and knowledge

  I flew across the skies

    But in vain…

With great despair and sorrow

  I returned back to myself

    Eureka!

The treasure was always there

  Deep within me

    Waiting to be found!
