Have you ever heard his stories
where he snatches away lands and territories,
I call him greed
I recognise him as someone who would make you bleed.
It’s hard to escape him
he makes the bulb of life dim
yet it’s so easy to fall in his trap
he can end your life in a snap.
He exists everywhere
making everything his lair
with him family does not exist
with him, pleasure you can’t resist.
You must think ‘how hard can it be?’
you are clearly ready to ignore and disagree
but Greed makes you want the universe
having Greed by your side is a curse.
Hi! I am a 13-year-old currently studying in the Netherlands. For 5 years, I was studying in London and moved to India for some time in July 2019. First of all, I love playing the western flute and have been playing for quite a few years now. Playing and also, listening to music is definitely my passion. Some sports I enjoy playing are badminton, netball, swimming, football, cricket (these are the top 5!). Ok, so let’s talk about poetry. I wrote my first poem in a primary school in England and this inspired me to start writing poems on WordPress. Some of my recent poems are about global issues such as climate change, depression, bullying etc. Writing poetry is another passion of mine…so, check out my poems on WordPress. I don’t know what else I could say here so, hope you love my poems…..happy reading!!
