Greed - Poem by Green Peace

Greed is the disastrous animal of man!
which obliges, cripples man to be immoral, selfish and cruel.
Wish, want, will, desires are the elements of greed.
From which man can never be free.
Greed is a vicious circle of life.
Without whose entrance man cannot survive.
Greed rises from the want of money or materialistic pleasures.
To destroy greed we have to limit our desires.
To drive greed from within we must perform
meditation and salvation.
The ultimate end thus leads to happiness
and pure satisfaction.

    Well written, but importantly you understand. Man does not understand that pleasure alone will not give in happiness. Yet he chases after every kind. Bob (Report) Reply
