    There's a great quote I love which goes We buy things we don't need, with money we don't have, to impress people we don't like, now I like people but I don't believe owning three hundred thousand products or keeping up with the Joneses makes me a better person then some, if people place more importance on having items or looking like extras from Dynasty then they are not people I have no regrets with not having relationships with. Knowledge is the only long term wealth. As always you stab to the heart good stuff. (Report) Reply

    How we look at life is more important than having a fat purse or other amenities in life. But if the loved one turns unfaithful, it is indeed heart rending....the hurt feeling is powerfully expressed... a nice poem! ! (Report) Reply

    A well described person-qua-person poem. I would say Lawrence that every one has his/her own realities, own illusions and delusions and own justifications. A pennyless life is not as worse as the faithless is! (Report) Reply
