But That It Robs You of Who You Are

8 04 2011

– after Kabir

 

But that it robs you of who you are,

What can be said about money?

 

Inconceivable, life without it

And dismal to live for,

Money lessens you.

 

Pay a wealthy man, there is

Much to gain; pay a poor one,

All you get is Thanks.

 

Kick at a half-empty deposit box, and it

Rings like a temple bell; strike a full one,

Says the Beloved, and only silence answers back.

 

:4.7.11
