A very well-written uplifting and encouraging poem. We often think success in life is measured by the balance of our bank account or to have status in society where everyone looks up to you, but there are more important things we have to attend to, like feeding and growing our everlasting soul for eterntity.

Very sweet Jaybird and great advice. I have a lot of reason to believe these lessons were acquired along the way, but some of us were natural born givers. Thank you for a beautiful poem today and for promoting it in the high dollar realm.

The last six lines was my favorite out of the whole thing.
The color contrast was interesting.
It's a good way to live and a wonderful outlook on life

Yep very good advice, Jaybird. These are my thoughts exactly. 'Money can't buy me love' to quote the words of the Beatles sony. A very well written poem. Best wishes. Jen.

Hello Jaybird, another great poem from you full of good advice. I like the way you place peace and joy, above money, prestige and success all very nice to a point, but peace and joy exceed these. Your rhyme and meter are very good and the whole is a good read. Thank you for posting. Regards Dorothy

This is a poem with a moral and a rhyme that works. How true are the words within it, yet we live in a very materialistic society where few people think the way you do, with the exception, most likely, of poets. Thanks for sharing.

This is a very well written sonnet about success in life and how to achieve it. Not what most people think. Most do not find it is very true my friend. Very good descriptive and true words you have penned. Thank you for sharing this. love and blessings, Teri

Thank you for your kind, written words within this poem. This poem reminds you what you would like to become or what kind of life your aiming for....greed is something that isn't a wonderful trait to have ( I have never liked greed), But we each have to look out for our self, because no one likes to be taken for granted either; used for a doormat.

A wonderful poem of things that don't count in this life. Self-centeredness is never a winning formula. If you are all you care about you'd better find yourself very good company as you may be your only friend. Giving and sharing wins and keeps good friends. Well done and so true. Rox

Excellent reminder of what is important. For us, it's certainly not money - at least in large amounts - only enough to keep our heads above water. Still there are "things" we crave. Things we do not need. Better to be sharing.
