The Greedy Man Poem by ANJANDEV ROY

The Greedy Man

Rating: 4.7


In the dark
And silent night,
The man fell deep asleep,
He was very greedy,
After a while,
He thought in his ambitious vision,
"I need more money,
I need more jewels,
I need more comfort, "
Suddenly someone asked him
From the dark environment,
"But why don't you think that you need more knowledge? "
The covetous man became stunned.

wise poem penned; - greedy mind thinks of nothing except the worldly things like the assets, jewels, money, land properties; greedy mind always feels unstable wherever it goes whenever; greedy mind never feels satisfaction though it earns all desired things; the knowledge of satisfaction, the knowledge of self to the greedy mind is meaningless; congrats for being selected this poem as POD......5******
