Are You A Rich Man or Poor Man?

Source

Live the rich life

I'm a poor rich man
Not in material things
But rich in what will make
A heart start to sing

Joy and peace and love
Especially the love which comes
From God above

Others don't quite understand
Why I don't want
What they all have
But that's not what life is
I do believe
There's more to life
Than the things we can touch
Or the things we can see

Rich man or poor man
It is all in your view
I may be poor to others
But I'm a rich man too

Others don't quite understand
Why I don't want
What they all have
But that's not what life is
I do believe
There's more to life
Than the things we can touch
Or the things we can see

Can you take it with you
I do not think so
What you have inside is all
That will make it through

Rich man or poor man
It is all in your view
I may be poor to others
But I'm a rich man too

Well said - I will take a poor man with a rich heart over a rich man with a cold one any day.

richness lies in the hear and the souls

True wealth is in the men you earn

Great poem my friend... deeply insightful

I like this. If everyone was this humble with hearts this honest the world would be so much better.
