Material Life: Too Much or Too Little


Walking along 

the path of life

an age old question

does cash buy happiness or strife


With or without

each brings challenges

knowledge of the world

can bring life into balance


Too much indulgence

one does not appreciate the journey

boredom comes easily

much time spent with an attorney


Too little cash

the struggle is clear

food, clothing, and housing

attempting to hold on to what’s dear


Too much or too little

subtle changes can make life richer

appreciating small things

become a giver


There is knowledge to be gained

living within our means

the grass is not always greener

whether wealthy or lean


Balance is having enough

cashing in on all things

accepting the journey

and all the joys it brings
