Why Human Want More?

Why human want more
when he's already got so much?
Where would he end up by having so much?
Is this greed or his dream?
Why can't he settle down with one thing?
He's got this and he's got that.
He's got everything but thinks,
there is something he still lacks.
He got what he had expected. But still wants more!

I ask again.. Where would he end up by having so much?

Can't he be satisfied for once in his life?
Can't he hold on,
looks one thing at a time,
and enjoy it,
and smile.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

this must be thier greed.. coz whatever they wanted, they have it, and now want more.
only limited resources are present on the earth... why cant we humans share it all together and live in peace..
we need to learn to reamin happy with whatever we have and sharing it with those who haven't got that much also...

    Beautiful poem Kirti. It's the greed which rules the mind. They will never find satisfaction in any thing nor they will give peace to anyone. Meaningful write. Loved it. (Report) Reply

    So true, in the world of sky rocketing needs and population explosion people go crazy wanting more.
    We humans have become insensitive, but our job is not over by just blaming others.
    Lets take the initiative at the personal level and the world will be a better place to live.
    Nicely explained.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
