I am not rich, I am Satisfied

It all began with a wish
of being rich, wealthy, powerful
But where did it end?
was it a happy ending?
How would I know
I was blinded by the greed
Thinking one day I will have enough,
enough for me to fulfill that one wish
but did that ever happen?
No, because I perpetually kept asking for more
and more
and more
Little did I know that this would be a drug
A drug that would be the end of my happiness
Because no matter how much I get I want more
It is when I encountered a jovial man
I asked, “how much is it that you have to have such glistening eyes?”
To which he replied with content
“I am not rich, but I am satisfied”
Only then I realized I had fulfilled the wish
for which this all started long back
The only thing that wasn’t fulfilled was my greed.

  1. Satisfaction is much better than all the riches in the world.

  2. I needed to hear this. After working for 28 years, I retired. At a party, two women approached me to tease me about being rich..”You must be rich; you retired.” I was stunned! One day, I might be rich. But I’m truly happy. My pension is enough to survive. They seemed bothered by my choice. I’ll never have enough money to suit THEM. I’m enjoying living in peace.

      In the end your happiness is all that matters. If we make our happiness dependent upon this never ending greed we will never find happiness, because we will never have enough to have everything. Therefore, being happy with what we have is the key! Also thank you, such comments truly inspire me.
