' Health Is Wealth ' - Poem by Marvin Brato Sr

Rich or not
We all have got
Chances in lifetime
To live quite sublime

More rich people become richer
And the majority poor more poorer
It's not how much money brings boost
But having enjoyed life not its cost

Healthy body makes an active mind
Once sick can't make good things rewind
Beware of taking too much of everything
Good health is wealth and the best thing
