Who are you?


Rich, are you now, really,
six feet under, resting in your own peace,
you are not your money!

Ironically intelligence is a claymore,
both ends so sharp, your action will decide,
you are not your knowledge!

Authority over a thousand men
slave to yourself, greed, lust and hatred, 
you are not your power!

Note – Money, Knowledge and Power, the three elements of success, or, are they? The set of three haiku poems is my perspective. What do you think? Feel free to comment below!

  1. Money, Knowledge,Power – the three elements that can be perceived as success. But no amount of money can buy happiness, knowledge is of no use is it isn’t put to good use and power can bring our own downfall if misused.
