Some are privileged

to be under a roof

which gives them shelter.

Yet they are not appreciative

of the things they actually have

as they pay

close attention

to what they do not have.

 

And the cycle repeats.

Dissatisfaction.

Craving for more.

Collecting more.

Thinking for more.

But never satisfied.

 

Satisfaction cannot be attained

to the mind that

attaches

to every pleasant

thing they see.

 

But satisfaction

can indeed

be attained

to a mind

that has no attachment

as they

understand

the true nature

of material objects

and as a result

crave no more.

Attach no more.

Seek no more.

 

That is when

the mind settles

and stops running crazily

like a greedy shopper.
