It is fascinating that the goal of men has been to conquer and possess.
To accumulate wealth and treasures to their so-called empire,
So that they may flaunt their power and superiority,
To those who look upon with disapproving or apprehensive eyes.
This world has only come so far and advanced in ways never imagined,
Because people began with little,
With little they lived and with little did they love.
And that was simply enough.
But they said life was short and the ideas great,
So great that though they were penurious, their dreams surpassed the wealth of the world.
Now there is so much excess and access to what people want,
All people work for is money.
Because everyone wants their shot at glory,
Most know that it is temporary and many of them still thirst after it.
Because showy cars and ostentatious gowns are the rage,
Polluting the true essence of life with the vogue obsessions of the age.
Life is short but that never means you should spend it away,
As a child would for a bag of candy.
Because life just may be sweet,
But a modest emptiness remains once all the flavour is gone,
And you are on your own, falling down without any help.
Sending you plummeting down back into the world of realism,
Once all the sweetness is gone.
