The True Meaning of Life

The first picture is of my 3 Children, Robert, Jennifer and Bryan.

The second picture is of myself with the love of my life, my wife and best friend Alison.

All together these are the reason that I am the richest man alive.

What does it feel like to be rich?

When I was younger, I would have answered this question with a smart assed remark, along the lines of " give me the money and I will let you know in a month".

But as I have matured in mind I have realised that in order to be rich you don't even need to have two pennies to rub together, you don't need to have any money at all to be classed as rich.

Not a Penny but I am the Richest Man in the World, a Poem I think

Not a penny in my bank account

No mansion no fancy cars

No stocks or shares in any amount

And I don't hob-nob with the stars

Struggling through daily life

To feed and clothe my kids and wife

Working hard day and night

Giving the wolves at the door a fight

Some times it really gets to me

Counting pennies to pay the bills

Electricity and gas don't come free

Scraping by is a battle of wills

Although I don't have money

I am the richest man alive

Because I have three wonderful children

And my wife the love of my life

My family are all I have

And their love is all I need

Knowing that they are happy

Makes me feel very rich indeed.

Back to the original Question at the top of this page

What does it feel like to be rich?

It feels utterly wonderful

I sold a lot of Books called

"Death by Chocolate"

That certainly would have sent the person from

The Capital Times into Orgasm, but I'm at a loss to understand

the near-orgasmic moans some women produce

when swallowing such sweet sustenance.

I understand that I am not hormonally equipped

to enjoy chocolate at all levels

This book had so many levels of Chocolate made cakes and biscuits.

It sold like a cat disapearing off a hot tin roof

Great hub Thank you

Fabulous poem.

My uncle used to tell my cousins that he's the richest man in the world because he has them.

Bravo! Despite being fiscally challenged, I share in the same spoils of which you speak. That is easy to forget when the wolves are at the door, and I thank you for the reminder! By the way, you have a new fan.

Great poem Jimmy - it's from your heart and far more true than many of us realize. Good to have such a reminder that we should treasure what we have.
