Rich or Poor

rich and poor

Rich or poor
same
get sick
make enemies
feel alone
die

Neither wealth
nor religion
can give you
lasting serenity
joy of everyday life
for all that gives
your life value
comes from the
Source within
nothing of this
world has lasting value

Do not look in
bank accounts, mountain
tops, one more guru
for what you must
find in your soul
wherein lies
the key
to eternity
