ThePoet May I feel the selfishness beginning to sprout Growing vast in a world already at stake I can only see two hands reaching out The right will give as the left will take The world thirsts for the rush of greed If we had it all we would still want more We claim we care for the ones in need When all of our riches feed off the poor.

A man of prosperity He was having dexterity Enough he earned in money Little he gave to the needy Or relative and friends Those who were very poor Even to his kith and kin. He prospered in such speed Together he was in greed For money and gold gained But still unhappy and bad mood No one was devoted to him Even his best half in dejection Still he loved his money All was well for years Hypnotized on influence of money Delectable events slowly lost He became ill for ever Even to drink water difficult Swallow food was not easy The day came, his death time People says his eyes were not closed May be looking for money The safety notions in thoughts Even the last moments of journey.

But each merciful oblation— Seed of pity wisely sown, What we gave in self-negation, We may safely call our own;. Every coin of earthly treasure We have lavished upon earth For our simple worldly pleasure May be reckoned something worth; For the spending was not losing, Tho' the purchase were but small; It has perished with the using. We have had it,—that is all! All the gold we leave behind us, When we turn to dust again, Tho' our avarice may blind us, We have gathered quite in vain; Since we neither can direct it, By the winds of fortune tost, Nor in other worlds expect it; What we hoarded we have lost. But each merciful oblation— Seed of pity wisely sown, What we gave in self-negation, We may safely call our own; For the treasure freely given Is the treasure that we hoard, Since the angels keep in heaven, What is lent unto the Lord.

Money will never buy one enternal happiness, but is money serving as a distraction to further intelligence or is it just all life is and will be. Greed and money will always be there, but it's up to us to control it. That's true Kailee.
