…YOUR GAIN, NOT YOUR GOAL

By Adeleke AdeiteMoney

Money is a mighty medium, it is not a motivation.
Excellent employees work to learn and not just to earn.
Money is a super substance, it does not bring satisfaction,
Lo, some super rich men take solace in suicide.

Health is wealth but wealth may not mean health.
The rich also die untimely – no money magic.
Money can pay big bills, it can never buy breath;
Money provides good food, how about good mood?

So many bright and big brains are behind bars;
The mindless motion for money is their manacle.
So many sterling strikers were stripped of stars
Because they made paper their purpose’s pinnacle.

Money has both real and face value – so beware.
Not all sweet smiles spring from a sincere soul
Money, men and materials will one day flare;
It is good you have all as gains and not as your goal.
