In The Swirl Of Greed

Knowledge teaches us
How much is our need
Vices inundate
In the swirl of greed.

Increasing knowledge
Lessens the needs
Guides the soul
Towards wisdom and peace

Vices are like
Cancerous germs
Increases the greed
To destroy oneself.

Goal of life
Is to attain love and peace
With greed
We can never reach that place.

Greed is
Like a hunting trap
It allures, attracts
And ruins at last.

Increasing knowledge
Lessens the needs
Guides the a soul
Towards wisdom and peace

Without a doubt... this is a wonderful peice of writing
Sigh... this is so tender, I'll bet your lady was aglow with happiness after she read this. The love very obviously glows from every word sewn together here. HG: -) xx
You are indeed a poet of merit. Brilliant.
I love that in this romance it feels as though you are the only ones who exsist...much like Adam and Eve...such beautiful notions written here...great work.
This is absolutely gorgeous! What a wonderfully sensual poem
