>The Tree Of Greed And Suffering - Poem by Abdul Wahab

I spread my greed as a tree spreads its root
Deep and wide into the ground, straight
To suck upon the sap with its tip
And send it directly to the leaf

More I go deep more I get
More sap I get more gets me greed
Behind all of my troubles cause is the root
The result of my misdeeds blooms
Into a flower and hangs from every shoot
I bear the suffering as the tree bears the fruit

    A beautiful symbolical poem. Greed spreads its roots everywhere and on everyone. The power of will to fight it back must be strong.
