Children of the wealth

Some people are fighting for money and wealth -
yet when we die, we're not taking what belongs to the earth.

                                                             get the picture!!

                                   for treasures- people will  deceive you; betray you

                             bottom line;as we passed away our collection is staying behind.

    Worldly treasures are worth nothing for if it does not last forever it is nothing, yet its amazing how people would sacrifice their lives to get nothing.You have put it very well-People will betray you and deceive you for something they will leave behind. Probably live with the "treasure" for a month, or even a week or a day! Nice poem with a lot of wisdom in it.

    Diogenes, I get the picture! Smiling Big- The true treasures are the kind acts that we give and recieve to/from fellowman. Those are the gifts that God allows us to take with us when our souls return to Him for judgement. Excellent write. Love, Dane
