Letter to the rich

Dear rich people of the world,
Tell me how you got your riches;
Did you earn them honestly?
Or you acquired them dishonestly?
If you earned them honestly,
That is good;
You have a right to enjoy
The sweat of your brow.
If you earned them
In the dark,
What a shame!
Riches are good,
When not earned through
Dirty hands.
Ill-gotten wealth is bad;
And ends up destroying its author.
Be rich if you can;
But know how you get
Your riches;
Feed not fat on the poor;
And in opulence swim,
While they like flies perish
In abject poverty.

Be careful or you regret (Be inspired today 237 by Ngobesing Suh Romanus)

How it happened,
It’s hard for many
To understand;
They were all kids
In the same neighborhood;
Taky from a rich home,
Mawomba from a poor one;
Mawomba begged from Taky
To survive;
Today, as grown ups,
Mawomba is rich,
Taky is poor.
Taky begs from Mawomba
To survive.
Who can guess
What must have happened?
What went wrong for Taky?
How did the tables turn?
Can this happen to anybody?
You may be a Taky;
You may be a Mawomba;
This can happen to anybody.
Better to be a Mawomba
In childhood,
And end as a childhood Taky
Than to be a Taky
In childhood,
And end as childhood Mawomba;
You have to watch out
If you are blessed;
You may waste your blessings
And regret tomorrow.

Clean or dirty Money?

I want to be rich;
A rich tycoon;
Who doesn’t want to?
But what I hear
About riches boggles
My mind,
It is mind blowing;
Does it confound you toon?
Do all rich people
Play foul games
To amass their wealth?
Aren’t there
Clean rich people?
Tell me true or false;
Does one have to be crooked
To be rich?
If one must play foul games
To become rich,
Is it worth the while?
That’s dirty money!
What can dirty money give one?
I want to be rich;
But not through dirty money.
I want to get clean money;
To have clean hands with riches;
Not dirty hands with dirty money;
Let me be rich;
But let me have clean riches.
Clean not dirty money.

The rich and the poor

Who makes the rich?
And who makes the poor?
Who makes them rich?
And who makes them poor?
If focus is on the poor,
It’s easy to understand;
What is hard to grasp,
Is why the so many poor;
How did we get to this?
Is this the world
Our creator gave us?
That a few are so rich
And so many are so poor?
Who makes the rich?
And who makes the poor?
Don’t the poor make the rich?
And don’t the rich make
The poor?
This is my answer:
The poor make the rich;
The rich make the poor.

Critically sick of poverty

Critically sick of poverty;
All around me are riches;
Everyone bathes in wealth;
Having enough to eat,
And some to throw away;
Living in mansions
And enough money
To throw around;
But here I am living in
Misery;
Abject poverty;
Nothing to live on;
No food to eat;
No roof over my head;
I live in the open air;
On the streets;
At times in motor parks;
Train stations;
Poor me!
I am critically sick
Of poverty.
Poverty, an evil that is
Ravaging the world.

The amazing grace of God

Are you ready to share
Your blessings
With a poor, rustic village kid?
You who are born in the city
In opulence,
In a family of abundance,
Where riches flow?
With buttered bread?
Milked and honeyed tea?
Are you ready to be
A blessing to another
Less fortunate?
Not favored by fortune?
God calls on you to pass on
The gift;
That it’s not for you alone;
That if he so abundantly
Blesses you,
You have a duty to share.
Let the fruits from your fruit tree reach others;
By so doing you bless others;
As a coworker with Him
That was, that is and that will ever be.
You are an instrument of God’s answer to others’ prayers;
Yes, you must share that wonderful gift
From heaven;
You owe a duty to put a smile on another’s face
Today;
Make another happy;
That others, through you,
May see, feel and enjoy
The amazing grace of God.
