Poverty of the Soul

Music – Deep Thoughts

Poverty of the Soul

Wealth doesn’t make us rich
Richness of the spirit and soul needed
Needs and wants vying with each other 
Others dreaming of what we have
Have and have-not in a clear dichotomy 
Dichotomy dividing the society 
Society in disarray 
Disarray of the soul
Souls deprived of true values 
Values that give purpose to lives
Lives lived empty in a moral vacuum 
Vacuum that expands to envelope our beings
Our beings empty like deflated balloons 
Wealth and riches are useless if we have poverty of spirit.
