It's a matter of perspective

Can you really have EVERYTHING 

Or NOTHING at all?

It depends on how you see things

And that is what life brings

Truth or beauty

Sorrow or joy

You hold the cards in your hand

Take a chance on living

Go for the gold

In your heart

It's better to have nothing

at all.

Than to have everything

with a cold black heart.

You can buy up the world

And lock it all up

Just for you to see

Soon you will find that

You trust no one who knocks at

Your door.

Alone with your stuff

Is that enough for you?

That's your choice

Money can take you

to far away places

With far away people

That care not for you

But for what you have

If you lose your money

What can you be now?

You can have everything

And nothing at all.

It is a choice of your soul.

Your heart does not need things

or places

Your heart just needs love.

It matters not what you have in your pocket

Or what street your reside.

Keep that sunshine in your soul

You do have EVERYTHING

AND NOTHING AT ALL.

BE STRONG, BE LOVING, BE YOURSELF

IT'S BETTER THAN NOTHING.
