Attaining The Almighty Dollar - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Rushing to meet deadlines, hurrying through life, pursuing
empty dreams and finding nothing but unhappiness to fill
our needs and desires.

Always being in a space of emptiness, feeling love drained
from our beings as we spend more and more time away from
loved ones, looking for ways to attain that almighty dollar.

Life lasting only for moments as it is, yet agendas and
calendars are filled with appointments and meetings, always
taking us away from those who love and need us more than any-
thing else in life.

Putting aside necessities of love, caring and compassion,
never realizing until it is too late, many people die, never
attaining happiness or fulfillment with their families and
loved ones.

    A hardhitting soulsearching poem on people's mercenary obsession! I dont get the use of money if it deprives loved ones of our time. Time is money, that needs to be spent on family. I tink we should write 'in bucks we trust' on the almighty doller. Kudos! (Report) Reply
