Greed can not be fulfilled

a poem by Reginold Ajay Jacob, India

Greed can not be fulfilled,
For it reaches all the more high,
You may try to fulfill it
Yet it flies still high.

As in the mountains,
As you stand on a peak,
Ye find still higher,
Higher than the one you seak.

No limits to greed,
Can ever be found,
Why, my soul, why,
In such limitations abound.

Thank God for His goodness,
Thank God for His love,
Neither can metal be taken,
Nor has it any worth.

Food, shelter and clothing,
And the fact that God is love,
No more is ever needed,
Nor do they have any worth.
