Treasure Island

Greeds


What do you have at your home?
Nothing, except some desires and greed
To sooth and comfort you.

Greed enters your home very silently
Finally it becomes your master
And you become slave of your own greed
Oneday it will drag you to an unknown grave.

    I very much like this kind of poems that start with a starle and end with a slash{slap} on conciousness, and what happens? Our senses wake up to see a new truth! Kudos Master. (Report) Reply
