Treasure Island

Aditi Khandelwal

(December 27 1997)

Greed


With pain in neck he walked around,
all alone with just a frown.

All he wanted was there,
but reaching it seemed unfair.
All he wanted to do, he could,
But always wondered if he should.

What could he do with all his money?
all his expensive belongings seemed funny.
He had a mansion, garden a car,
but all the love was really far.

With pain in neck he walked around,
all alone with just a frown.

He deserved it, he totally did,
it was all because of his greed.
A young man, when he was,
he never even tried to measure his loss.

Now creeps him a pain,
when his dungeon walls are old and stained.
His billion pounds now have no use,
all he has lost, now what is there to loose?

With pain in neck he walked around,
all alone with just a frown.

    All worldly pleasures can become nothing when there no other person to share as humans are gregarious by nature and hope you read some of my poems on loneliness for contrasting style..10+++++++++++ is the rating I gave this poem! (Report) Reply

    true..
    we are born alone
    we will go alone.
    greed makes the distance short..

    This is a perfect writing clearly describing the greed of one man who found happiness in just material abundance but his life was really empty when it came to other human values. This powerful, well penned with a richness in rhymes and words, clearly shows your great poetic talent at such a young age.10+++ Keep inspiring the World with more such thought provoking writes. God Bless You! Love and Peace for always! Romeo from New York City! ... (Report) Reply

    One just can't get enough of everything when they have bigger greed than gratitude. Nicely said Aditi. (Report) Reply

    This reminds me of Midas touch! He cannot enjoy anything in life! He can just frown and go! That is all! (Report) Reply

And pays us but with earth and dust;
