Homes

Its funny,
We scour the town for homes
The biggest and the best
Sometimes forgetting that ultimately this life is a test
Somehow we think bigger makes us better than the rest
And we forget that we are only falling prey to the devil that’s “interest”

What would we do with bigger?
Perhaps fill it with stuff
All that stuff that’s essentially a mixture of fluff
Wait! I know you’ll rebuff my statements
Perhaps telling me you’ll pay it off in larger increments
The truth is, things don’t make us happier
Contentment is the key
Seek it and it shall set you free

Don’t be lost in an ethereal haze
A perpetual daze
This life is only a phase
Material things are the all-encompassing craze
But submit yourself and offer the one most high praise.
