Are you richer than these kids?

I see them almost naked
Dancing in the priceless rain
The joy in their eyes
No sign of angst or pain…

I have so much more in the bank
I have a wardrobe and a bed…
But I cant think of the last time
I joyed over a piece of bread…

I keep my head down and work
Never found time to enjoy the rain…
And in the end when I raised my eyes,
Life had passed me by, all seems in vain…

When all is said and done
What matters is just this…
The peace in our hearts
The soulful childish bliss..

Be poor, stay hungry, live humble
Who cares if you’re homeless or small…
But if you learn to live happy
You’ll actually have it all…
