When in darkness gold is useless

by Lucio Muñoz

It is not a secret,
If you believe in god,
Behaving bad even when trying to be discreet
Leads to a price to be paid,
If not here,
Up there.

As when there is light at the end of the tunnel,
Experience tells you,
The path to be followed is easy to find,
But when you live in darkness,
You know that neither owing a soul of gold
Can save you.
