Nice Selfishness
by Ted L Glines

In a life more long than sunny
value - truly not about money
I've always had the needed things
given to me - no deals nor strings
no wants I couldn't live without
no need to curse - or need to pout
my fortune always - before me
and I am happy - living free
so when I see someone in need
my gift to them works like a seed
for they'll go on to give relief
to someone else - ending grief
thus fortune is an endless river
helping all - to please the giver.

Excellant write and commentary on what could have been if religion had of been loving kind and caring, not greedy, hateful and preaching fear and prejudice.

Those that share what they have with the less fortunate are storing up treasures in heaven. Great poem to start my day and act upon it.
Reviewed by Jeanette Cooper 6/16/2008
A poem with a nice benevolent thought, which brings to mind the expression, "What goes round comes round." Put another way, "What you send out comes back to you ten-fold."

Ted, my old Californian Ted, the air of Texas most be polluted beyond believing, because you will be stoned with bibles by the righteous if you insist in talking your mind outloud (please wear a steel helmet)LOL

There are so many worthy causes out there. Sometimes we'de like to give to all but it becomes almost impossible. Hopefully, as you say," the infectiousness is passed on." Peace, Love and God's Blessings Always, Paul.
