Everything Isn't Enough. Poem by Marcondes Pereira

Everything Isn't Enough.

Rating: 5.0

The more I get, the more I require.
Everything isn't enough, cause my desire
Becomes greater
My needs arrive faster
All that I have doesn't make me feel better.

The more I get, the less I enjoy.
I buy, I buy, I buy... But I don't feel joy.
Materialism is my god and I'm his slave
I pray to him, but he doesn't save
My soul from boredom.
Save my soul from money's kingdom.

Your poem perfectly sums up the materialistic world. And how many are enslaved by it. I work in an environment in which I see it all the time. And I'm totally shocked that so many people still haven't wakened up. I think that this poem should be required reading for them. Truly an outstanding job! Congratulations on your 2nd Poem Of The Day!

You are very right. Desires are unlimited and they never end. The more you get, the more you require. More you get and less you enjoy. So why, we souls pray God to save us from material world and from illusion. Very thoughtful poem is of awareness. Excellent poem this is....10....Congratulation!
