Created Wealth Versus Inherited Wealth - Poem by Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

rich man
or woman
poor born

with
abilities
gifts

which enable
him or her
to fast prosper

meet a market
need or potential
to self develop

economically
to create wealth
statistically

such workaholics
may be too busy
to ever relax enough

to enjoy
their wealth
for long

so driven
by need
to achieve

constantly
changing
set goals

their
own
set

maximum
economic
potential

inherited wealth
especially old wealth
is a very different

animal
wealth
takes

a lot
of time
care

not all
relatives
share in

or
equally
in

bequeathed
inheritance
of fortunes

when
it
comes

to the acid test
good hearts
are found among

rich and poor
percentages
of goodness

the quality
of any heart
not as easily

defined
as cliché
experts

assert
weigh
hearts
