Life worth living


DSC04685What do we really need

To live this life indeed

Driven by ambition and greed

We never pay any heed

To the little voice inside

We constantly try to hide

Behind a curtain wide

Of a false sense of pride

Collecting material possessions

In random succession

Making an impression

On others is an obsession

But happiness it never brings

Wasted are expensive things

Fulfilment always springs

From moments that tug at heart’s strings

A kind word, a beatific smile

They can stretch for quite a mile

Make an insipid existence worthwhile

Friendliness never goes out of style.

A helping hand to extend

A shoulder on which one can depend

A mind that can prejudice transcend

An open heart that can befriend

These are the kind of things that make

Life worth living for its sake

Objects and money are fake

Illusions that we must break.
