Never A Need For Greed

                               There is so much to give around here
                              So much to grab on to..never to let go
                                 Immersed by sharing and giving
                               There will never be a need for greed

                                   The urge of creativity..endless
                                 Sees nothing but love and peace
                               Evil defeated by armies of kindness
                  At the helm..stands a new world leader of compassion

                                    Driven by inner tranquility
                     I solitary write these majestic words to the world
                            Cheers to each and everyone of you
         Who sees the world with kind eyes..and greets mankind with humility

    A bit of your dear soul shines through in this wise poem Arild, To give is to find peace and satisfaction; I surely don't know how the takers feel but there are plenty of them out there starting with the government.
