Wait For Me

You wish to possess me
I am the embodiment of your dreams
Yet I remain elusive
I tease you
I allow you to hold me but not for long
The smell of me intoxicates you
You work night and day and still I am not yours
I am promised to another
Others are living their dreams
Why are you left in poverty?
You are told I can not bring health or happiness.
It feels like a lie.
Wait for me
I will fill your pockets one day
Honest work does pay
If you have patience
I will not run away
Do not sacrifice to much in the pursuit of me
You need less of me than you imagine
I am but one gift that you will receive.

First attempt at personification, hopefully I got it right.

    I'm back. You did personification so well, Richard. I'm looking for writes I haven't read before. Hope all is well. Hugs

    Oh! I first that it was going to be some juicy romantic piece. As for now what the Good Book says....It is the root of all evil. Ok...I just want a leaf or two! ;) Great personification.

    This is an awesome personification poem, especially considering it's your first!! I've never seen anything written from the perspective of money. A very creative write. And to answer your question - If I had received advice from my future self at the age of sixteen, I probably would have rolled my eyes and done the exact opposite :)
