The Greed~by Nakshatra Singh



The Greed

Greed is mighty but blind.
It wants to run, but needs one.
Soon it finds The Hope,
An innocent companion,
Ready to join one who wants.
And the journey begins,
Greed speeds up fast,
Hope can’t sustain it long,
Soon it is left behind,
To join some tired traveller.
Greed moves on alone,
Soon it finds new companions,
The Lust and The Cruelty.
All three are born blind,
Knowing not any path,
They run together fast.
The chaos, the rampage,
Until at last they trample,
Someone of their own.
Alas, in that painful moment,
They don’t find The Hope.

PS : Never forget, it’s not hope that carries our Greed forward, it’s cruel lust that does it…..
