TRUE WEALTH

TRUE WEALTH

A Poem by Jonathan Bryant Dean
"

A pause to think of what is really important.

"

Tell me how much money you have,
go on, count it out loud.
Now tell me how you plan to spend it,
does it make you feel proud?

Tell the world how much time you spend,
Go on tick Tock out Proud!
Now how much time is left at the end of your money?
Go on, you can cry out loud.

Who mourns for the dead who want no more,
The grief that is here should be for the poor!
A man with time and no money to spend,
Is happier than a King who has reached his end!

People will always matter more than money.

Wisdom always hits it for me. And this one Hit IT!
Funny enough we often display this sort of behaviour; i.e, getting proud or feeling fulfilled by that which is merely fleeting or just simply lacking value and maybe even unnecessary.
Very truthful piece and a reminder to keep in mind, always,
that which truly matters.
Glad i got to read this one. :)

truthful and thought provoking. It's sad the way wealth is valued more than life itself. Amazing write.

Truth right there, can't argue with that.
You've got a good feeling for words and rythm, I like that. And the rhymes. Sometimes rhymes kills themselves by being repeated and overused, but yours didn't. Nice!
