Think of the needy

Images that flash inside your mind
Give cause for hope that you may find
The things you treasure that you've never had
You know, the things you want, it makes you sad
It's true that in life, things you really desire
Are the things you want, the desires never tire
Discount all the things that you already possess
The wanting of something you cannot suppress
The material life that we live in today
Doesn't stop the pressure on the mind it does weigh
Just stop and think for a moment or two
There's always someone, much worse off that you
So instead of the lusting after all that you see
Think of the less fortunate and then agree
Next time you crave for something you don't need
Think of others in the world, don't succumb to the greed
If you have disposable income with no pressure to spend
Give to the needy, on you're generosity their life may depend
