Opulence

In the

Run after of craving….
Following of yearning….
Betrayal of wishing…..
Infidelity of longing….
Perfidy of hankering ….
Hunt of desires…
Fulfillment of passions….

I have learnt one thing;

Poverty makes people weak,
Still
They
Have sound sleep & meek
Accomplishment of which thing, in them formulate reprieve
& happiness deep?
Yes
Gratification,
Satisfaction & contentment are genuine lavishness.
If our thoughts starts voyage to deem.

    Gratification, contentment, satisfication;
    are signs of complacency.
    Complacency destroys rhe spirit of mankind.
    If he is satisfied he has required little.
    If he is content he has sought out not much.
    And gratification comes at the cost
    of loss of adventure.

    A very beautiful write, Farah! The whole poem is lovely but the lines I loved most are- Gratification, / Satisfaction & contentment are genuine lavishness. / If our thoughts starts voyage to deem! Great philosophy from so young a mind! Thanks for sharing!

    Where our heart when our eyes here see them suffer?
    Who are we to blind the sight denying what in our heart?
    yes Farah, poverty is dangerous treat to human
    because of this
    we lose pride
    we may lose faith
    only great people will stay then
    but we as a human should be one and help
    if hands dont have fingers it wont work well
    so we should be fingers to work as hand of humanity
    a great write Farah_Soul
