$$$$ My Good Sister $$$$ - Poem by Marvin Brato Sr

Greatness of a person is not measured by riches
Real importance lies in what the heart truly wishes
Accomplishing big things without love is useless
Continuous blessings when wasted become pointless
Enhancing one's wealth is not your sole dream I guess.

Boldness of character is not a guarantee
Right thing is made if applied wisely to see
A fulfilled future that secures good retirement
True happiness is not living in too much luxuries
Overwhelming zest is the freedom from worries.

Resources that you share for sake of charity
It will be marked as gesture of good quality
Of one real sister like you who is Godly.

    I liked the poem. I was looking for a poem to read to a coworker on her new journey. There was one sentence that didn't seem to make sense or fit into the scheme of things but overall the poem is great. The sentence that I am referring to is, A better future that secures good retirement, it didn't seem to flow with everything else in the poem. I think it is great and out of the other poems I had selected, the committed decided to go with this one. (Report)Reply
