Greed And Contentment

Greed And Contentment short poem

Photo by Tabercil

Human mind is as wide as ocean
Its desires are as deep as sea

When the greed sets in the mind
It is like a tsunami in ocean

The range of desires is as vast
as the boundary of ocean

The depth of greed one could sink
can go as deep as Sea

When desires in the mind sets in
accumulation of wealth sets out

Greed for accumulating wealth may reach the zenith
as like ocean peaking high during tsunami

The destruction that may cause in accumulating ill gotten wealth
is akin to the condition prevailing aftermath of tsunami

Desires subsiding towards contentment
is like rising Sea calming down
to settle down for keeping steady

Steady and contended mind creates confidence and
prevents tsunami like situation in life
