Materialism - Poem by Theresa Ann Moore

It seems that the less a person has
The more simple things have pizzazz
Looking past face value offers more…
Appreciation has a meaningful allure

A man who displays riches loses track
He always wants more and that’s a fact…
Each new jewel is surpassed by the next
Multitudes of desire make life complex

The saying, 'More is less and less is more'
Is a contradiction when adding up the score…
Believe me, it is so; reality tells a tale of regret
Living life with a wanting can leave you in debt

A poor man may own more free and clear
Than some supposed wealthy millionaires
