True Wealth | Wisdom Prose - Poem by Anna Maria

What is wealth?
What does it mean to be rich?
Wealth consists of those treasures
which cannot be destroyed or taken away.

knowledge of truth,
love of learning,
finding joy in simple things,
beholding beauty everywhere,
contentment in every state,
gratefulness at all times,
courage to do right in the face of adversity,
and being at peace with oneself, with all others, and with all things-

these are examples of true wealth,
and to be rich

is to enjoy such qualities in abundance.
