Poverty Versus Luxury

Many of us are begetting rich and richer,
then we ate from the finest quality of meals,
and we drunk from the most freshest juice,
we live a luxurious life,
as it is meant to be forever.

we seek for it, we seek it all,
for our eyne hast truly been blinded,
with such temporary pleasures,
that we thought are to be everlasting,
nay! but they are indeed.. fleeting.

we symphatized the poor people,
but we are not knowing,
it's us that are truly need to be sympathized,
for in our safe chest and bank accounts,
much of those wealth,
aren't yet being given to the needies.

you must not fear the poverty that you thought will make you live miserably,
incomplete without it,
for verily you'll not be diverted by it,
as it brings you closer to the One Who Hath Created,
hoping.. asking for continuance in sustenance.

but fear when the world became so prosperous for you,
as for those people who came before you,
then you'll rush into it,
greedily without looking back,
as those before you rushed into it.

it will silently ruin you,
without you knowing,
as it ruined those before you,
without they knowing.

know O friends,
competition in the accumulation of wealth,
have truly diverted us,
until the time we visit to the graves,
or when our death arrives.

soon we shall know,
of which is a good and which is a bad ending,
does the wealth do you any goodness?
forsooth .. never it will.

willy nilly,
the truth have been told,
it's of your own ultimate choice,
to have the forethoughts on it,
or to forsake it.

  1. Nice one, bro ^_^

    But if I'm not mistaken, there's a slight grammar error, I THINK! (for it sounds quite awkward to me, I don't know) Hehe! I am not sure myself :)

    "it's us that are truly need to be sympathized"

    So why don't you put it this way, instead :

    "it's to ourselves who we need to be sympathized with"

    Just an idea :)
    Above all, you've succeeded in inspiring other people out there as well!
