So you have lots of money, and everyone treats you like their honey. But all the gold in the universe, cannot be enjoyed if it's cursed. You may have a big fat crown, distorting your judgement and weighing you down. Fame and adulation, I'm not saying they're bad. But if you are not grounded, they can make you mad. You may be in the prime of your youth. But what good is it if you are far from the truth? Trusting your own strength, influences from all the wrong friends. Or maybe it's not these, but your family. But what happens when there is a calamity? Your children could be your all. Someday they will have their own lives, y'all! Whom do you really serve? For whom is your praise and worship reserved? Are your decisions made to protect your ego? Are you deceived by a worldly vertigo? Do you worship your senses? Pleasing them all without worrying about consequences? What is it that comes first? Is it always the self and to quench your own thirst? Who sits on that throne? It is said, 'worship God alone'. Who comes first? Is it your family and friends? However close today, someday there'll be nobody to defend. Self preservation and worldly pleasures, if these are your primary treasures, you are really poor, my friend. Because, to worship God, is to have peace and transcend. Some things can never be shared. Like your spouse or your underwear! There is place for only one. Choose wisely and the game of life is won.

It is my desire to study the four gospels. Writing poems helps me put some thought into it thereby making it fun to learn and remember. I was stuck on the book of Matthew for years and never really completed more than the first five chapters until I began writing ‘the Matthew Series‘. Now, I’m revising the contents of the book of Mathew by writing another series of poems titled ‘Inspired by Matthew‘. This one will not be as comprehensive as ‘the Matthew Series’ and may not be in an orderly sequence. This particular poem is the sixth in the series. I hope you enjoy reading each piece as much as I did writing them.
