Idea Of Rich

Idea Of Rich

1 min 265 1 min 265

Looking for Wealth and seeking quick Rise,

A man of spice sought old man's advise.

That trader crossed desert crossed river and Land.

Reached Forest, searched trees as suggested old man.


But found fruits and trees the useless stone,

But what he was searching, spices were none.

Being frustrated returning after home,

He asked Man wise what wrong I have done?


The Old Man smiled said Road was so long,

Your idea created distractions thousand one.

Spices not there but sparking stones,

Precious than herbs, were in fact diamonds.


Wealth can be made not only from the spice,

Diamonds were there, could have given you a rise.

But thinking was faulty, in method a glitch.

You are defeated by idea of your rich.
