Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

How many things do we need to be happy?
Are the “Things” that we have,
The “Things” we really need?
Are the “Things” that we want,
Out of necessity or greed?

“Things” are all the items,
We are told that we must get.
Putting the naive misguided people
Deeper and deeper into debt

Told to us by big corporations
With their lying alluring ads.
By a greedy society’s self-indulgence
Falling for the falseness,
of ridicules new fads

And more “THINGS”!
New houses, stylish clothes,
Nice cars and diamond rings.

How many “Things”
Does a person have to obtain?
Before they finally realize,
They are just greedy selfish and vain

That is why I keep my “Things”
Few and far between,
Because the ugliness of always wanting
To me is clearly seen

My humble life is packed
With everything that I really need.
I am free of all the want,
Vanity and greed

My heart full with love,
and the happiness it brings.
Because I finally realized,
The best “THINGS” in life
Aren’t material “Things”
