Mental Wealth - Poem by chandra thiagarajan

Mental Wealth
Every one has to necessarily work
to sustain their lives on earth,
and not go berserk.

For food, clothing and shelter,
material wealth is required,
else one may go helter-skelter.

Inner wealth of mind
is to be developed first,
which is to be compassionate and kind,

With patience and generosity,
uprightness and worthy of respect,
with knowledge sans pomposity.

There exist various forms of life species:
none is so particularly special
and valuable as our human species!

In this species of exalted breed,
the root problems of human lineament
exist as lethargy and greed.

Devoid of these wrong qualities,
material wealth must be acquired
in a noble manner by the entities.

When there is thus a priority
of mental wealth over material wealth
the material wealth gleams in quality!
