Despair is never far from the minds of many

in a society that revolves around money

nobody is immune from feeling deeply low

when nothing can brighten their day

desperation drives more of us to gamble

hoping for that win onward we ramble!


Competitions and the lottery we play

spending our few resources on hope

there are those they say the lucky ones

who do win but some cannot cope

pressures abound as costs keep rising

more end their lives it’s not surprising!


When you hear of another big winner

hard not to envy their fortune

knowing how many entries you made

anguish is often overwhelming

but it’s a vicious cycle a hollow dream

as people pursue to the extreme!


Spending their lives in perpetual torment

trying to win the big money

which becomes an obsession in their family

in which nothing else matters

and misery is all that they do remember

to each and every family member!


Wealth surely goes beyond material gain

despair has no boundaries of pain!


The Foureyed Poet.
