The Alchemist

a poem by Jay Ross


****


Tell me of the alchemists

And the story that is told

Of how it is that they have learned

To turn lead into gold


Not just with bulky metals

But something much more dear

How they can turn Hate into Love

And make Joy out of Fear


Turn the weight of boredom

Into anticipation

Turn the lead of anger

Into golden expectation


How they can go to work each day

To seeming dead end jobs

And still come home and hug their kids

And gently love their wives


Tell me how they always smile

Even at their boss

And never feel that all this time

Is really just a loss


Tell me tales of grandeur

And living at its best

Leaving all the bad behind

Embracing all the rest


Tell me how it’s up to me

That I can do it too

By loving life and doing things

That I know to be true


Tell me now how even I

Can be an alchemist

By seeing all the best in life

And making up a list


Of every wonder that I see

In each and every day

In every face I look at

In all my work and play


Tell me if I learn to see

The good in everything

That I can find the magic

That causes hearts to sing


Then even when it seems

That there is darkness all around

I’ll know love is always there

And Joy can still be found


And when the tale is finished

The story has all been told

I’ll use my Love to turn the lead

Of my fears

Into Gold
