Piece of Mind, Peace of Mind, Pizza Mind

Will that new car make you happy?

Can the latest and greatest phone 

make you feel less alone?

Materialistic things we want give us a smile.

But they are merely just temporary tattoos that

will fade after a while.

We seek happiness through manufactured goods that are sold 

to the masses.

It even goes beyond things that are tangible.

Everything from emotions to Disneyland passes.

Sometimes we just want to feel and look smart so we enroll in

academic classes.

Fully grown adults that still fear being seen as dumb asses.

I've been a victim of this myself.

However I've grown to seek an education for purposes of substantial wealth.

Now you may be questioning what makes wealth "substantial?"

It goes beyond just financial.

It is to gain a piece of mind to have a mind of peace.

To have the privilege to dwell on that state of being even on the 

days of which you feel at your least.

This poem is about: 
Me
My community
Our world
