Coffin Of Gold Poem by jibin joseph

Coffin Of Gold

Rating: 5.0

All around its greed
More more more I need
If I have one I need more
I am not satisfied anymore

Not in my dream, I would share
Greed overtook me and I stopped to care
I am no longer satisfied with anything
Feel like owning everything

All the money in the world
Still greed tells me more and more
Where I will bury all these wealth
I have lost myself that’s the truth

Help me …to me they plead
Greedy I am to see them plead
What will I do with all these money?
Still more more more I need

Maybe I will have a coffin of gold
Stacked inside with paper money
Where will I take these after I die?
With open arms and in coffin I lie

No more can I hold anything
The truth to leave behind everything
Still I am filled with greed
More more more I need

The cycle of need-greed-feed is addictive and ultimately becomes the sole goal in itself. This is true of drug addicts too.
