Happiness and Sorrow


When travelling down the path of happiness

I feel so sorry

When I see the ones with nothing

But only money.

    This is a very original poem, very nice way of expressing the poverty of the money-blinded people.
    Far too many people have nothung but only money.

    a complex issue that stems out of human nature which never gets satisfied...there are certain things which we take differently in theory and feel it different in actual experience, but while traveling on the path of happiness money is not everything but something that buys living, and education...and what you felt is right as only money is also not a solution for a good life...a thought-provoking write Ken e Hall! ! !

    I feel the same, but maybe money is all they need to make them happy. That would not work for me. Then again, maybe being miserable with money might not be so bad.....hmm. I'm willing to give it a try, ha ha. Good poem! (Report) Reply

    I too share this sorrow, but no doubt will never have to worry about such an affliction. :) (Report) Reply

    'Nothing but money' implies a profound message while in today's world money is considered everything. (Report) Reply
