Material Wealth - Poem by chandra thiagarajan

In the balancing scale, you know,
The weightier pan tilts to be low.

Similarly if your mind is in the mundane level,
Filled with thoughts of material wealth to revel,

Your mind's scale descends in degree,
And it becomes distanced from God's decree.

    So much said in so few words... The love of money (material wealth) , they say, is the root of all evil; and evil will ultimately decreases one's mind scale degree further from God's decree. Brilliantly written. (Report) Reply
