RICH YET POOR.

RICH YET POOR
DSC09986
BY: GIVEN MOYO
We have taller buildings, but short tempers: wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints: we spend more, but have less: we buy more but enjoy it less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time, we have more degrees, but less common sense: more knowledge, but less judgement: more experts, but more problems: more medicine, but less wellness. We have multiplied our possesions, but reduced our values. We talk too much; love too seldom and lie too often. We’ve learnt how to make a living but not a life: we’ve added years to life, not life to years. We’ve been all e way to the moon & back, but have troubled crossing the street to meet the new neighbour. We’ve split the atom but not our prejudice: we write more but learn less, plan more but accomplish less. we learnt to rush but not to wait. We’ve higher incomes, but lower morals: more food but less appeasement: more acquaintances but fewer friends. These are the times of tall men & short character, of more leisure & less fun, more kinds of food, but less nutrition. These are days of two incomes but more divorce: of fancier house but broken homes. We spend too recklessly, we laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry too quickly, stay up too late, get up tired, read too seldom, watch too much TV and pray too seldom.
INDEED WE ARE RICH YET POOR.
