Pocket Change


I emptied it on the table
Pocket Change.
It clinked as it fell
And then settled
Into a silence.
An assortment of coins
That adds up to a lot
But looks worthless
One piece at a time.
In the age of plastic money
It is unnecessary
Weight in your wallet.
Bulky
Awkward
Belonging best in beggar’s hands.

Feelings
Are like that too.

It depends on who beg.

Thanks thegalnxtdoor, Shiana and Ajeya!

Indiamap, agree on that. It depends on who begs but the assumption is that those who beg will also value them more.

Anonymous, this isn't about my perspective of feelings but of some others who treat other people's feelings worse than pocket change; they probably think more when giving loose change to beggars than while discarding someone's feelings. For me, feelings are still paramount...at the very same level as thought if not higher.
