we are obsessed with wealth, the haves and the have-nots compete for attention from the marketers and politicians

as if there is a difference

toothpaste by the hundreds shine brighter than studio lights
did you eat enough fiber today, the thousands of cereals in primary colors all claim to have the answers to taxes, to jobs, to life itself

they all lie

sugar is sweet and so is rhetoric, empty promises of infinity ~ energy and purpose if you are patient and allow those who have to solve all your worries

money is colored paper

you’ll never have enough

you’ll never buy everything you crave

you’ll spend an entire lifetime coveting possessions you don’t need ~ that’s what the haves control, your choices, your happiness, your soul.

take back your joy and wait
