Obsession

Wealth comes in many forms,

If only we could recognize them

In love, family, spirit.

The world doesn’t recognize

These gifts for it revolves

Around money,

The haves and have nots.

The gap between the two

Grows wider every day,

With every act of violence

Stacking the odds against

Peace among the people.

Where did we go wrong?

How did our obsession

For material gain

Push us back so far

From what matters most?
