What is Life

What is Life
	
Life is a gift, with many ups and downs,
Its mysteries and wonders keeps’ us spellbound; 
It takes us on adventures, that were not planned,
It has twists and turns, that we’ll never understand;

Life never stops, no matter the time or season,
Its existence is evolutionary, like the “Garden of Eden.”
It is a story book, pages full of complexities,
It baffles our minds, and exposes our insecurities

What is life? It’s beauty, change, imagination, too,
An everlasting rollercoaster ride, experienced by me and you!

Black Death Among The Shadows Does Gaily Roam

Black Death Among The Shadows Does Gaily Roam

Black death among the shadows did roam
deep in solitude its power reigns.
Nowhere and everywhere it calls sweet home
and always its appearance brings pains.

Through fords, over mountains into gentle seas
fate sends its messenger in a black shroud.
Never to be stopped by the many crying pleas
or women moaning and wailing out loud.

Its only victorious foe, the light of eternal life
where our Redeemer's truth and divine love grows.
Delivering us from depths of misery and strife,
brought by suffering from fear of death's throes.

Black death among the shadows does gaily roam
Yet tis forever forbidden in God's sweet home.

Behind the Mask

Behind The Mask

Behind the mask is a face of grace,
Enhanced by the lines, of life’s rat race!
A thing of beauty with a story untold,
Eyes send a message that soothes the soul!

Behind the mask hidden from reality,
Is an unconscious mind, full of mystery!
Brain waves quivering with every heartbeat,
Still clinging to life, not accepting defeat!

Behind the mask is a smile of relief,
As a mist fills the room with disbelief!
Lips whispering words softly in ones ear,
To let them know there’s nothing to fear!

Behind the mask is a heart of gold,
Living on forever in an angelic soul!

What is life

What is life?
Life is just eating, sleeping and making sex
to show your identity
that, you  have strength enough
to produce kid, to earn your bread and butter
to nurture your child
And to prove the society
that, you have not added any extra burden 
etc, etc, etc........
Am I right ?
No, no, no, no......................

Then, tell me "What is life ?"

Life is playing cricket, playing tennis, playing football
and playing other popular games
to show your talent
in front of the people 
that, you have strength enough
to make record after record
to create a space in the hearts of people
to generate crores of fan
to reach new heights
to earn million and trillion dollars
etc, etc, etc.........................
Am I right ?
No, no, no, no.......................

Then, tell me :"What is life ?"


Life is doing politics
defeating opposition and capturing power
enhancing growth and accelerating development
and to show your strength
in front of the people
that, you have muscle
to do anything you want
by creating turbulence to execute your need
by killing democracy to capture chair
by mudslinging to cover up your weakness
by blaming rivals to increase pressure on them
etc, etc, etc...................................
Am I right ?
No, no,no,no................................

Then tell me "What is life ?"

You may be a player,may be a politician, may be an actor
whatever you may be
first of all you are a human being
you should have,
a prudent brain, to read the face of innocent
a broad heart, to house billion hearts within you
two strong arms, to extend support to the needy
Yes,
you may not have any penny
but, If you will have a sacred soul
to feed a poor by saving a single bread  from you
Then,
time will definitely come
whole world will salute you.
Am I right ?
Then, tell me "Is it life"
Yes,yes,yes...........

Of Sweet Life, All Blessings Future May Bring

Of Sweet Life, All Blessings Future May Bring


Why curse the morn when my friends cheer
for my well being and greater health.
Should I not now vanquish my great fear,
look anew at my friends as epic wealth?

O' heart will you better control my mind
vow truly to hold brighter each day!
Consider friends Ive been blessed to find
and know that forever friends we'll stay!

Why curse life when happiness can be found
in sunrise, sweet breeze and family love?
Shall I let loose joy and truth be unbound
in praising life and heavenly Father above?

Sometimes a new day's joy sets one to sing
of sweet life, all blessings future may bring!

In Our Vanity We Think Ourselves Above That

In Our Vanity We Think Ourselves Above That

Far above, this hectic and mysterious life, 
are those magnificent clouds and God's deep blue sky.
Although our chances for sweet happiness are rife,
we often see not, thus hardly ever ask why.

Within that vicious circle we plod right along,
victimized by our own armored and blinded minds
And if we by chance hear any heavenly song,
far to often we ignore such wonderful finds.

Signs within Nature give us such abundant clues.
In our vanity we think ourselves above that.
In our abundant ignorance we pay steep dues
and foolishly think greater wealth is where its at!

Far below, our hectic and mysterious lives,
we often crawl forth cutting our throats with sharp knives!

Don't You Even Go There

Don't tell me it's wrong
and you don't know if it's right.
If it's really too heavy
don't pretend that it's light!

If the link is weak
you know the chain won't be strong
and if it appears to be short
only a fool says it's long!

If the going gets rough
accept that it won't be smooth
and if you tell me a lie,
don't disguise it as the truth!

If your going to cheat
don't make it look like you're fair-
and if you can't get to this-
"DON'T YOU EVEN GO THERE!

If it's all falling down
don't say that it's rising up.
If you drink it to the last drop-
you WON'T have a full cup!

When the table is bare
don't say you're having a feast
and when you're hogging the most
don't cry that you have the least!

When the sun is shining
don't look for rain and clouds that day
and if it's coming towards you
don't act like it's walking away!

If it doesn't have wings
don't tell me it's going to fly-
just don't think it's going to fail 
until you give it a try!

Don't tell me one and one are three
when we both know it's two
'cause if you're going to ADD like that-
you need to learn to SUBTRACT too!
 
So don't give the challenge
if you won't take the dare,
I hope you hear what I'm saying-
"DON'T YOU EVEN GO THERE!"

Don't you even go there-
don't you dare to try that!
If you can't be on the up and up
then stay where you're at!

Don't suffocate it
when you know it needs air
and if you can't get to this-
"DON'T YOU EVEN GO THERE!"

The Place Of The Hidden Treasure


                                  "The Place Of The Hidden Treasure"


    There was once a time when a decision was being made as to where to hide the secret answers to life!
Suggestions were being given and considered earnestly for these treasures could heal, restore and end strife!

    A few ideas were put forth, in an attempt to find the right spot, that would produce a great challenge to Man!
I will try to describe this chain of pondering events, and I will do the very best that I can!

    One Angel said "Hey, I know the best place to hide these secret answers to all of life! 
Let's put them atop the highest mountain on earth and give Man a true challenge for which to strive!"

    "HE" said "Listen, do not underestimate Man in any way, for he will devise a way to get to this place!
Then once he reaches the highest of heights, believe he will then reach into outer space!"

    Another Angel said "I know the best place to hide these secrets in order for Man to prove his worth!
Let's bury them at the bottom of the deepest ocean...the deepest ocean on planet earth!"

    "HE" said "Do not underestimate Man in any way for he will find this place!....Do believe!
Not only will he succeed in reaching the pinnacle of heights, but to the deepest depths he too will achieve!"

    "I've got it...I've got it!" said a third Angel..."I know of a great place that's out of sight!"
"This will frustrate him no matter where he goes...to the deepest depths or the highest of heights!"

    "Let's hide them deep within the center of the earth...Right at it's very core!
It's deep, it's dark and it's very "HOT" and we'll not have this problem anymore!"

    "HE" said "Listen, do not underestimate Man in any way for these secrets his own soul he would sell!"
If the deepest depths or the highest heights will not stop him, he'll think nothing of going straight into HELL!"

    But I know the perfect place to put them. It is somewhere he'll never ever think to look!
I will keep them with ME in the one place where I dwell... The place he has always mistook!"

    "See, I will hide the secrets within him, in the one place that will never come to mind!"
Man is always seeking for the answers outside of himself and to this place mankind is quite blind!"

    "But I do know one day he will find them in the one place that I will guide him from where to start....
and he will finally realize where the answers were all the time....
they were with ME kept within his own heart!"

Just Listen

Just listen;

Life can be lived and loved...as desperate as a dying mans thirst.
Or…you could... just listen.

The daily wind carries the words of your live's….just listen.

Life can be as pure as the water that once flowed from the most ancient and forgotten places …just..observe… just listen… enjoy the rain.

It all ends in a lake…the purity…? Unknown to all of our kind.
Be ware…the toxic tributaries.

Do more than just...flutter on by this place and time.

I dare you to look down upon it all…you are already on high..be brave...be just one eagles eye…for just one moment...go on now…give it a try... in your minds eye.

Spare a thought for the wind under it’s wings.  
It carries the words of your  live's…just listen…into the always and evermore.
Always ‘know’ that these words are a gift…always know.. that you 'are' the present.

Always remember….the gift as already been given.  
Sometimes we just have to remember, and remind ourselves of the present…
To do this…care more…love more…and just... listen…It’s just…US…Just… listen.

Attainment Of Wisdom And Understanding


                     "Attainment Of Wisdom And Understanding"


                    "A word to wise shall be sufficient!"
                         How often I have heard that said.
                    That explains why we were given two ears
                         to listen twice as much so later we'll not dread!

                    If one is digging a ditch for another,
                         then he might as well dig two!
                    If it should be that his plan does happen, 
                         in short time the digger will get his due!

                    There is a way that will seem so right to do! 
                         One will not heed the word of warning!
                    The disaster of the end result
                         may be the sorrowful time of a "mourning!"

                    Neither fresh nor saltwater can abide in the same stream!
                         This pertains to words emanating from the mouth!
                    Some words have a sparkling, fresh taste to them-
                         the brine of salty words will give one "cottonmouth!"

                    Speaking of mouths "The Tongue Can Be A Fire"
                         that no one on this earth can tame!
                    Both death and life words can be spoken....
                         one should "BEWARE" of what one doth proclaim!

                    The cowardly and the wicked tend to flee 
                         when there's no one in pursuit!
                    Their feet get entangled and they trip and fall!
                         Running fearfully is not their best attribute!

                    "Hell and Destruction" are never full!
                         It seems there's plenty of room for both!
                    These two things should be avoided at all costs!
                         They should not be allowed any growth!  

                    Can one take fire in the bosom
                         and their clothes not be burned?
                    Now that's one lesson I do not want to know!
                         That's not wisdom I ever want learned!

                    Mercy and truth should not be forsaken!
                         Wisdom says  "bind them around one's neck!"
                    Also write them on the tablets of the heart....
                         This will keep them both in check!

                    Attaining Wisdom and Understanding
                        "NEVER EVER" takes a day off!
                    Every waking moment these two...
                                     "DO PURSUE!"
                    Attain them both no matter what the cost!

The Lord And The Two Thieves-Jesus, Dysmas and Gestas

On the day that Lord Jesus was crucified
so were two thieves on His left and His right!
One stayed unrepentant right to the very end,
the other did receive new insight!

Now Gestas, 
the one placed to His left,
most defiantly railed out loud-
"If Thou Be Christ Save Thyself And Us!",
this he said before a deriding crowd!

All the while the soldiers were mocking Christ,
and vinegar they wanted Him to drink!
Dysmas was watching and taking all this in,
this view gave him much to rethink!

"Dost Thou Not Fear GOD" 
he asked Gestas,
for he was having some deep second thoughts!
Obviously his life passed before his very eyes,
knowing his predicament he could change not!

All the while, 
Jesus, between these two
was putting His own death on hold.
Here there was one more soul to save
and this moment would forever be told!

"Thou Art In The Same Condemnation",
Dysmas said-
his new insight had made him say so.
Jesus all the while, 
I believe He did smile,
for the sound of repentance 
He did know!

"For We Receive The Due Reward Of Our Deeds"-
an epiphany Dysmas did receive.
Here was a man also hanging on a cross
who realized he did now believe!

Now Jesus,
smiling, turned His head to the right
when the next thing He heard was this-
Dysmas said what was true from his changed heart,
"This Man Has Done Nothing Amiss!"

The smile in the eyes of Jesus said it all,
when the next words from the thief to His right,
were....
"Lord, Remember Me When Thou Comest Into Thy Kingdom"
and it was about the sixth hour of that night!

The love of this Man named Jesus
with no regard for His own plight did rise,
when He looked Dysmas right into his eyes
and said-
"Today Shalt Thou Be With Me In Paradise!"

Such were the last moments in time recorded
of Jesus and these two thieves!
Whatever one's done....
even if wrong in life,
"Paradise" will be attained 
if one believes!

A MEANINGFUL DESIRE

 A MEANINGFUL DESIRE

Human nature is never satisfied
temporal fulfilments we evaluate and try
these things may serve their use
inexhaustible riches we so oft’ confuse

 generous gifts are open-handedly bestowed
our appetites are whetted—seldom slowed
contentment remains an elusive pleasure
stubbornly we pursue all earthly treasure

our fun-filled ,self-styled life—insane
wearily penetrating absurdities of life—inane
negating souls try unearth significance –require
eternal cravings provide--solitary meaningful desire

SEX ANTIDOTE

Quiet whispers   
whispering about sex
sex is natural   
everyone's whispering about sex
masculine and feminine energy
male and female sex   
let’s talk about it     
let’s talk about sex
souls dating
souls mating
I’m first  
he’s next 
he's staring at it 
going at it
no calls, no text
lose the negative stigma 
associated with sex
come,  come      
sexual education is up next
here’s what we need to know
admire the body  
it inspires growth
be kinky
blindfolded, suck on toes
no shame in it      
play with it
see where it goes 
sex is not to be put to shame
sex so good 
I call out his name
`oh, God  
his name
sex so good   
no shame     
sex so good   
no blame 
sex is an antidote for emotional pain

ANIMAL INSTINCT

Animals packed in packages
with no clear conscience we buy
hotdogs and burgers 
perpetrating the lie
DEAD animals in the oven
alongside granny's pie
reaching for the dark meat
shoulder, leg and thigh
no justice for the animals
no justice for their cries
killings in slaughterhouses
with no proper goodbyes
humans behaving like animals
and nobody’s asking why
humans  are  eating  animals
that’s the reason why

You Can Say I'm A Dreamer

Hate when they say, "don't get your hopes up, baby,"
'Cause it only means you never once tried to believe
In something bigger than your little selves
That you leave sitting on the shelves.
I on the other hand, know very well,
I can overcome every obstacle;
Can raise myself as high as I put my hopes up.
'Cause how can dreams be dreams,
If they're never meant to make me see
There's so much more to life, than it seems.

The trap of materialism

So you want more nice things!
Will your life have more meaning?
When you have more stuff, is it ever enough?

Don't you know that there's more,
to life, than keeping score,
of who has more things,
what joy does that bring?

Our days are numbered,
don't just fill them with slumber.
And just having fun,
doesn't mean that you've won.

Your life should have meaning,
a purpose in being.
Doing all these things is,
like trying to catch the wind.

song

Wind catchers don't know
which way to go.
Wind catchers don't find,
true peace of mind.
Wind catchers can't see,
the truth that sets them free.
Wind catchers climb ladders,
but, does their life matter?
Wind catchers die with more,
but, who's keeping score?

A simple life is the best!

Do not worry about tomorrow

No man has the authority to undo 
the past or control the future. And 
know that yesterday’s burden is but 
today’s lesson and Tomorrow is just 
a dream of hope.Therefore, let not 
your spirit be anxious by what’s been 
done and by a day that does not yet 
exist. Consider the creatures that soar
through the sky and creep upon the  
earth, they do not let the bitterness of 
days gone by and fear of what’s to come 
drive them insane for they know to live 
one day at a time.

Complete Cookie

Who would of thought, A Cookie would make us Complete
From the moment we met, We were glad to meet
Vegan inspired, You'd thought it be Yucky!
Therefore I shared, And you were so lucky 

Satisfied taste buds, Along with good Conversation 
Over a Year later, Off an exit you should've never taken
Soft Kisses and touches, Feeding our imaginations
A feeling much deeper, two hearts making a connection

If I am your Cookie, Then what are you to me 
My Blue furry Monster, From Sesame Street

The Cookie to your Monster ; )

Fishbowl

Swimming revolutions,
Walking in the right lane,
Cultural institutions,
Every second's the same.

Our destinies intertwine,
Though our paths differ,
While we are not caught on a fishing line,
We are all cycled through the same filter.

The steady monotony,
Of wake, swim, eat, sleep,
Echoes quite similarly,
To our habitat of mindless routine and day dreams.

We all dream of adventure yet squander our independence,
To you, tank or sea water have no difference,
You are all served the same universal dish,
Yet you always seem content in your glass container,
While we brood in our confinement constantly searching for a departure,
That is why at aquariums,
I find the people as fascinating as the fish.

Meaningful Screw You's

I'm done with this I've had enough of this/
Slushy trip since Hell Paso son just quit
This empty pursuit
Of letting the past keep livin' through you/
Go ahead and equip the damn truth
It is that simple to choose
What state of the neighbor of the temple you use
But you're just so adamant to worship/
Every preliminary negative
Which is why you have sentiment for those sedatives
Want evidence man your head has been/
Set on making your *****Titanic as
You steer into a gigantic crash/
Without any ****ing idea what effect thy absence has/
On the kids and on me too/
My heart feels ripped the honest truth/
To see you empty as your holes in the wall
You're like a ghost to us all/
Pale as the Seroquil pills you down/
I want to help but under the meds what you feel gets drowned/
I have the inauspicious fear you'll end up just like Tommy
That's why I pray every night/ I can't lose you Robbie


You have no idea 
What it's like
To watch you die
Every day
Every night
All the time
You can't even see that I am
Here with you
By your side
But as much
As I try
You deny
That I fight
For your life then I scream that
To me your life's meaningful (good riddance) 
But I'm 'bout this close to sayin' **** you (you idiot)
To me your life's meaningful (good riddance)
But I'm 'bout this close to sayin' **** you (you idiot)


Why can't you just forget the past
Take some time to look at the bigger picture and not be back in a flash
We're Kruger (pronounced close to sounding like Kroger)/ the fear you helped restore gives me bags
And I'm beyond tired of takin' attacks from your last-
Ing grudge for my darker days/
I love you but I wish to part our ways/
There's only so much my heart can take
In terms of holes and you immerse me in 'em the Spartan way/
It's not our choice we're physically far away/
And yes half the reason is me that our spark gave way/
But this time it's your fault that our world is shaking
You shut me out because the ears of another girl were waiting/
It seems that even for Britney your concern's decaying
It's ****ed up/ 'cause you never acknowledged how much I changed/
'Cause of our rapport me and my fam are pretty much estranged
**** these games you love to play/ 'tween now and then nothin's changed
Good luck not lovin' me as much as pain


You have no idea 
What it's like
To watch you die
Every day
Every night
All the time
You can't even see that I am
Here with you
By your side
But as much
As I try
You deny
That I fight
For your life then I scream that
To me your life's meaningful (good riddance) 
But I'm 'bout this close to sayin' **** you (you idiot)
To me your life's meaningful (good riddance)
But I'm 'bout this close to sayin' **** you (you idiot)


For a year it's been suicide with clues to find solutions I/
Don't think you're usin' my heartful l advice/ damn dude have I
Not been full of time so you could find/ reasons for you to not be blue and live/
But everytime I cope a sit and let you vent/ you walk off and do the opposite/
Talk about exhausted *****try listenin' to all your promises
And problems it's/ a shame how it's all turned out
I'm so burnt out/
I'll be the last to say this won't work out/
If you take your anger out on me again like I'm a dating spot/
Speakin' of those feelings that you refrain from not (knot)-
Icing was it honesty/ or rants of despar (as in spar) ity exasperated by deprav (as in im"prov") ity/
Or is there a real fervor (as in carni"vore") for me
If so then why you ignor (same as above) ing me/
For a Vai's you say you are not strong enough to close
Go **** yourself with a rubber hose
I don't care where the **** it goes/
I was there when no one was and this' the thanks I get
Never was I a dick to you so why'd you wank me *****/
My tears have turned into repressed anger/
For you a brother to me now a depressed stranger
That I have to put up longer than my dress' hanger


You have no idea 
What it's like
To watch you die
Every day
Every night
All the time
You can't even see that I am
Here with you
By your side
But as much
As I try
You deny
That I fight
For your life then I scream that
To me your life's meaningful (good riddance) 
But I'm 'bout this close to sayin' **** you (you idiot)
To me your life's meaningful (good riddance)
But I'm 'bout this close to sayin' **** you (you idiot)

Images Returned Have Meaningful Say

Little of one is directly ourself shown
True reflection not oft on display
A murk through which we see not each other
Indiscernible behind curtains of grey
To reach for another without mirrored emotion
Is apt to cause misunderstood pain
For life is meant to be clearly apparent
Images returned have meaningful say

In searching through fields of tinted reflection
Hoping to find truth and devotion
Chance did I upon honest return
Amid scores of shadow-mirrored emotion
This image a likeness unto itself
Crystal in opulent ray
Upon this mirror forever I gaze
Images returned have meaningful say

A mirror return full of hope and promise
Such is life's sole position
To cast such view returned upon the world
Would fill my heart with pride-filled mission
Such image is cast into my life
Given by one with joyous display
Content to withdraw her shading and cloak
Images returned have meaningful say

With such image brightening my soul
Reflecting directly open upon my heart
Caught in its trance - hypnotic of style
My barriers of defense soon fall apart
Thus, into this view I cast my life
Knowing inside their must surely be way
To join this image in its totality of grace
Images returned have meaningful say

If clear reflection I too might cast
Between might bid we free forever sorrow
Returning truth of purpose to each
Guiding the other into tomorrow
A life of two - mirrored halves
One and each the other's incident ray
Happiness found between clarity of love
Images returned have meaningful say

what is wrong with humanity

We yearn to possess but 
forget to appreciate ; just 
like oil and water we’re 
incapable of uniting to 
become one element. Our 
destructive entity has kept 
us estranged and incompetent
to work off each other. We are 
all struggling in the grip of love.
Remember the internal and external
worlds are mirrors. Let us form the 
inner world out of love and kindness  
as it will influence the perception of 
the outer world.

Comatose To Life

Comatose To Life

Somewhere on a small island called Penang, historically known as the Pearl Of The Orient…
There is a heartwarming tale of how tender loving care revived a comatose patient…

The patient is a fully qualified Florence Nightingale about to launch her nursing career ..
Full of hopes and dreams,  excited about achieving her goals in her chosen career…

But the cruelties of real life was fatefully unloaded on her one unlucky day…
A twisted sense of fate saw a motorcycle accident  that cruelly  left her for dead..

But her strong will to survive and fight was something no doctors could have forseen… 
She being in a vegetative state, those experts think they know enough to proclaim…

There’s no hope of full recovery, poor girl, and it is best to pull the plug on her…
Given her extensive injuries, her vegetative state, it’s best not to prolong her misery..

Her ever loving aunt, her only mother she had known, was resolute in her decision…
Come what may, her favorite niece will have her undivided love, care and attention ….

No one knows the depths of agony and the despair this loving aunt quietly suffered…
The loneliness and the infinite patience, only a mother maternal could have done better…

Through 2 long years of unending love and tenderness, against all negative perceptions..
From the expert doctors to the disbelieving relatives, she tirelessly persevered in her actions..

Today her  plucky comatose patient is awakened, though she is far from full recovery…
What matters is she is alive, she has made it through, though there’s need for counselling …

This story is just a beginning for Janice Chuah Chai Ming, it’s  the start of a long recovery  journey..
This poem is just to document the power and the intensity of love and perseverance extraordinary…  

For Chuah Bee Hong, the loving aunt who quit her job to devote full time for Janice’s recovery..
Prayers be with you and your loved ones, good deeds like this deserves only good in life’s glory..

The tree of life

The tree of life links all mankind 
in routes of genes. It began as a 
seed sown and grew into branches 
rich with offspring of every kind but 
the bitterness of the world has trembled 
its core causing some leaves to fall and 
vanish in the void while others ponder on
fate and wander on the origin of their traits.

The Sower

Be the sower of time 
Strive without end 
For the seeds that fall
Amongst stony ground 
bend only to be crushed 
by the world.They’re shallow 
and wither when the sun’s
heats are on life. Those that
are scattered unto thorns 
have no land for their roots 
to grow but those that are 
cast into good soil mend and
harvest abundant fruits. Let 
us not be delivered unto 
trampled path to be sedate 
by earthly traditions till we’re
drawn to perdition.

Summer Celebration

Sweet sounds drifting through the air, 
causing happiness everywhere.
Flowers bloom and sunshine shows, 
all happiness seems to glow.
Adults and children join and gather,
the air is filled with joyful chatter.
Birds are chirping and skies are blue,
everything is perfect, good as new.
Picnics on the fresh, green grass,
everyone toasts with a glass.
Songs and dances through the night, 
everything seems to be just right.
Cheers to you and cheers to me,
we're all a big happy family.

Life Mistakes

Oh, how many errors were made
And how little was accomplished…

When you walk through life
And look at everything around…
One irresolvable conundrum:
‘Sellout, lie and backstab people
 To gather Power, Money?
 Or, maybe better give your conscience rest?’

In order not to be ashamed 
For what was done in journey
And don’t have compunctions all the way 
Despite of being surrounded by Power, Money
And be bereft of friends when it’s all ended.

But everything in life is very straightforward
And answer conjured up (at least for me): 

When going through life and in a process
You need to give right answer
 To a simple stupid question:
‘How pleasant it is for you
 To look inside thy soul and not to cringe 
 From overwhelming pangs of conscience
 For what was done along the way
 In order to achieve All Mighty Power, Money?
 And not close eyes in pain, feeling regrets?’
