Rags or Riches
The people who have nothing
Probably have everything.
And the people, with everything,
Probably have nothing.
Being kind to others
Is a gift that’s free.
Loving all around,
That sets you free.
Being honest and genuine
To all others is free.
Caring for people
You know or see is free.
Taking time to stop,
And listen to others is free.
Helping to make people feel good
About themselves is free.
Being able to open your eyes
See the beauty of life that is free.
The ability to tell right from wrong is free.
Helping others, wanting nothing in return is free.
The basic costs of love and understanding
Adds up to little more than Humanity.
Not trying to be someone
We were never put on this earth to be.
Being too preoccupied with wealth,
Caring only for ones self,
Not seeing others hurt, or pain!
Failing to love all around,
These are signs of lifes natural poverty.
