Cash based life


The only thing ever wonted
Happiness! ! ! Is it based on money?
Fame or fortune?

Can you buy your happiness?
Or will you be happy
If you just got money

Yes you can buy
The visible things around you
A nice car and a big house

But not love wealth and happiness

Meaning of happiness is coming to a home
By the end of the day
Even how you low on money

But still to a home to your love ones
To someone who really loves you

Not for your big house or your fancy car
Or how much you can spend buy one day

Yes, now a day's life is mostly based on money
But always have to try to see the meaning of life
With your naked eyes
Not with a blindfold around your eyes

To chase away the devil and the evil within our souls
To see the beauty within our life
Which is not based on money

Life is not all about money or based on it
Even we raised to believe that way

Believe in yourself and think about your life
With money on the side
Without making it the life source of your self

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
