Couldn't reach my add poetry, so this is added as a short story. Enjoy!

A man's worth is not measured by the amount of money he has in his pockets to flash

He attracts the wrong types of people by his excessiver amounts of cash

Often he is not measured by the characteristics of his soul...his heart may be bigger than the next man, in search for an eternal girl, young or old

His integrity, honesty, loveof God and self worth is more than all the money in the world...let me start again...he had pockets full of money and lots of friends

Relatives, women, his "boys", and even strangers on the street begged or sometimes asked for some ends

He, as an adult, had all sorts of new toys.  Money bought him ANYthing he ever wanted...until the day he met the woman of his dreams

He showered her with expensive gifts, trips, clothes, ... almost anything and he soon forgot and started treating him like she was one of adult toys

When he realized that she couldn't be bought, she left him

And his expensive show came to a screeching stop, he was wrought, in shock

After some time alone he was taken back to a time when he had no money, had nobody

He remembered all the things he swore he'd buy...time would slowly go by, each day he thought of her, swore he'd never let her go again nor tell her anymore lies

He searched, found and reclaimed his only true love and then replaced money with more valuable things, with more meaning 

He was no longer blinded by gree and dollar signs, he discovered what was most important and his money's worth was

The woman in his life
