Material Possessions - Poem by Daniel Bernard Kelleher

I forgot my God was out there
Inside my soul was crying
I worked hard all my life
My faith now slowing dying

Status was all I though off
Material possessions I craved
Money cars and holidays
Showing off my wealth

One day as I looked in the mirror
I didn't like what I saw
What looked back at me
A person I hardly recognized

That night my heart was heavy
Knowing I had forsaken God
I need my faith to guide me
And stop my soul from dying
