Obsessions of Possessions
Always in want of something more,
something new, something that’s hot,
each chance we get we go to the store,
our possessions just seem to mean a lot.
All we have, it is never enough stuff,
materialistic things our heart desires,
from boats to cars, things we can buff,
diamonds and gold just sets us on fire.
Possessions dominate our day dreams,
never satisfied constantly on the prowl,
love of money we invent new schemes,
reaching goals makes us yell and howl.
What we have with friends we compare,
jealous of one another we become so sad,
in want of fulfillment we forget to share,
possessions are nice but can make us bad.
No matter what it is, as long as it is mine,
from gold to silver, to pretty and so red,
we keep acquiring more over our life time,
then before we know it , sadly, we’re dead.

Oh, how right you are, Samuel!
The psychologists call it Retail Therapy.
If only we could accept thet this life journey which we are all partaking in,is to learn that PEOPLE are the first priority. The second priority is to learn how to get on with people! The third is to learn what you & I lack,so we can recognize our personal weaknesses and change towards a certain strength.
I sincerely believe that the person or persons who need to have the latest gadget, house, boat, car etc., is lacking in self esteem. Therefore, the materialistic product in my eyes, mean absolutely NOTHING! But, to them, it gives them a sense of security!
Just another part of the beautiful mystery of the human condition!
