How much money do you need?

You may earn crores,
Have the fanciest of cars,
But nature has already decided,
Walking is good for your health.

You may earn lakhs,
Order the choicest of delicacies, from around the world,
But your body is already configured,
To accept only a stomach full.

You may be the most popular,
Lakhs of people waiting to hear you speak,
But only a chosen few can listen to your heart,
That is the awesomeness of family and friends.

Technology might bring you several modes of communication,
Connect you with strangers and friends alike,
But none can convey the unspoken word,
As clearly as a teardrop or a smile.

You may travel fast and far,
With all the new transport systems in place,
Yet nothing shall replace the light stroll,
Amidst nature's lap, at your own pace.

Well, if all our needs are so clearly defined,
What is that for which we greed???
"It is not the man who has too little,
But the one who craves more that is poor."
