Iím not satisfied
Seeking worldly possessions.
Attaining treasures?
Earthly wealth leaves emptiness.
True riches canít be measured.

I canít justify
Hording treasures here on earth.
That joy wonít survive.
ĎHere today, gone tomorrow.í
Objects wasted when I die.

Why not simplify?
Seek only for essentials.
Try feeling content.
Find joy in simple pleasures.
Wealth used wisely is well spent.

Can I realize?
Some treasures offer comfort
To a soul in need.
Wealth can be used in wisdom
When spent gently in good deed.

I am satisfied
Seeking Heavenís possessions.
Attaining treasures!
Godís riches bring fulfillment.
His wealth cannot be measured.

I can justify
Hording treasures in Heaven.
That joy will survive.
Not today, but tomorrow
Rewards wait for me on high.

I wonít simplify.
Search always for essentials.
Never be content.
Find joy in Heavenís pleasures.
Seeking His wealth - time well spent.

I now realize
How His treasures send comfort
To all those in need.
Wealth can be shared in knowledge
Of our Fatherís Sonís good deed.

Teresa,
Very nice poem. It speaks so much truth. I'm sure we have all walked away with at least a morsel to ponder.
