So everyone wants to be rich.
It will make your life less stressful, easier to live, a life that is better to maintain and manage.
But money is pandora’s box
Then, does that make it fearful? Shameful? A taboo?
Oh but it is so true
That once opened, one may not be able to return
Upon which are taught to children and they learn as they grow
That being rich make us become bewitched
For it switches and twists humans
Of which could make even the sweetest people inhuman
It is the evilest of all
That we should all appall
So what does it even mean to be rich?
Is it the expensive car in your garage?
Or that pricey watch on your wrist?
The amount in your bank account?
That house by the beach?
That once opened, pandora’s box will give more than you can chew
Now hold up a minute, let’s take a step back
Let us look at the in between and clean out the word RICH
It brings me heartache to think what being rich means to some today
How much you earn, per hour, per day, the amount of each payday
There are many other ways to be rich
I would like my friends to be rich with love and character
With strength and power because being rich is more than that property you own
Or winning the lottery
More than the stories of glory
More than that of which you own and of which is shown
It is to be rich with yourself
Rich with experience, full of brilliance
That even though we may juggle our struggles in life
It is not about how much you hold in your hands
But how much you can hold in your heart and soul
It is not about how much you have but how much you give
That money is not everything
Being rich is more than that Rolls Royce in your garage
That Rolex on your wrist
The number of zeroes in your bank account
Although, I don’t think you want a complete zero in it, right?
Oh, but it is more than that penthouse by the beach, too
R. I. C. H. RICH.
Because only Real Idiots Care How much their worth is through what they can hold
