The ring described is an example of something that you think you can have, but when you try to take it, you realize that it's something for everyone to share and that no one can steal it.
The river of doubt gave birth to a, a beautiful stone
And in my hands I held it and I knew I was on my own
So I picked it up and I held it to the sky
And in my reflection I knew I was all alone
