He made some investments
Hoping to secure his financial future
And soon his pockets began to grow
He was rich or so he thought
Finally, he could buy everything he ever wanted

A beautiful, fully customized Porsche 911
An old Victorian style house
Four stories tall
With an entertainment room
Featuring a 76in big screen TV
Complete surround sound
And over 5000 watts of pure earth shattering volume
Another room for bedroom that could
Easily be the size of a small house
6 bathrooms all throughout
The Kitchen would make any chef drool

He married a young woman
Nearly half his age
And gave her everything she could want
Fancy jewelry, her own car
A sleek corvette convertible

He had more money then he could
Ever spend in his lifetime
He hired a maid and a butler
Just so he could spend more time
Playing golf, entertaining his friends,
And even some time alone with his wife

He had it all
And yet he wouldn’t dare
Give even a dollar to some charity
Especially not some stranger on the street

Many people have wealth, nothing wrong with that right? So what went wrong with this man? What hardened his heart? I think I wanted more of "his voice" here because you set the stage so nicely, i wanted to know more.

We know this picture so well. They have more than they need of financial things, because they won't spend a dime on a deserving beggar. Is he happy though?
