What's essential doesn't have to be seen it's true,
Many are blind, and can see straight through you.
Wealth is what's essential, but not the monetary worth,
But the things we deem valuable, while here on this earth.

Parents that loved you, to teach what love is-
Watching your kids grow healthy, having their own kids,
The prayers that are answered, that teach us all faith,
To have friends from all cultures, origins and race.

To find a "life" partner, to share happiness,
Acquire all these things..
And you'll know what "wealth" is.

So often people strive for financial gains... and miss the wealth that would have so enriched their lives... great poem!

These may be among the most wise words that I have read in PiP.  Poems like this can be serve as important reminders for all of us ~ and I believe that is the essence of poetry.  It is to find the message that touches us as individuals.  You touched me.
