Money matters!

Poetry By: aruntp

“Money matters” is a poem that narrates all about how money can contaminate our inner self which is pure with purity; money creates more desires and needs; but push the man to put on old garbage of thoughts to shift his personality towards the shore of ugliness. Once shimmered from the mind, he finds why he is like that living in this world.

Money snitches the mind;

So pure as water and honey;

Walked on earth in a snazzy style;

Sneaks in the heart, full of love and compassion.

Starts to grumble in a gruesome way for others;

Steps up the ladder in a grungy way;

Nothing eternal he feels inside;

The wave of eulogy evaded on his way.

Took all Evanescent pleasures;

Moved all around etching ethos of war;

Once, shimmered his mind of dirt;

Money falls all way on the earth.

Sit alone shilly-shally;

Shelf of books opened nearby;

Shocked looking the page once read;

Never remembered a line, in the mind.

Looked in the rare-mirror a while;

Saw the shinning sun far behind;

Turned around at once;

Moved towards the light so pure.
