The 'Poem A Day' Project ~ Day 201


It’s odd how people with money claim it isn’t everything
Those who buy what they want, say its not enough to bring
Fun or laughter to your life, that having lots of cash
Is a hindrance to finding joy, something to make you crash
That wealth shields off contentment, making it hard to find
True satisfaction or a feeling of peace inside your mind
Can anyone be at ease while rich, I really do not know
But if someone wants to fund me I will definitely give it a go

Money can’t buy happiness
When all is said and done
Then again nor can poverty
But money is a lot more fun

Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
