Sharon Maree Smith Poems
Are You Rich Or Are You Poor? ? ...
Yes...I look around..and There is a lot I see
Many people living in a state of luxury
'Luxury? ' they say..'but alas..we are poor'
Complaining about this and that and..'now we need more'
Let us take the pharaohs..and the kings in ancient past
They had less comforts then..than in this century last
A feather was used to fan them..servants so very near
Today..press a button..cool air is instant here.
The 'help'..they were there..worked hard to make their food
Preparing what is pleasing to their taste and to their mood
Today it is the same..but they just sit ...
Suddenly...swept up and taken
Lord, where is this I be
there is someone..kneeling on the floor
Is this all I am to see?
My head feels very strange this Time
Oh Lord..what is this I see?
The very soul that was before You
is joined here now to me!
