    dotsI Can't Afforddots
    -------------------------------------------


    Rich people take up the slack in spending.
    The desire and physical comfort.
    A lavish home and luxurious apartment
    all rich in decorations.

    Painting worth a millions,
    luxury car manufactured by Rolls-Royce,
    A feast, made only for alta sociedad.
    Yes, a toast to long life and happiness.

    Millions of people starving everyday,
    while others delighted having burger and fries,
    to riches it's difficult to choose;
    who's restaurants of gourmet meal in the city to eat.

    Money is no object when they take vacation,
    stay only with country's finest hotels and resorts,
    sleeping in silk rich luxurious robes; match with
    world most expensive perfume Clive Christian No. 1.

    Those daring jewelry from Bulgari,
    fine watches by Cartier.
    The french footwear from Christian Louboutin;
    now myself faced with embarrassment,
    with a pair of Nike from China.

      its all about perspective.
    some people are very generous with their wealth though it is true that there needs to be more people to follow suit.

    having said that...

    i have spent a lot of time living in a third world country and they are a lot happier there despite having nothing. i do not considering myself weathy but i do consider myself rich... i can pay my rent and eat my food and pay the power bill every time it arrives.

    and yet in other ways i am in poverty.
    when i spend time in this third world country i find people sharing their last cup of lentils with me, making me coffee from the last beans they have not knowing when or where the next ones will come from but knowing they will come. they always do.

    it makes me come back to my "home" country and be more generous with everything i have. to help people out. to give people things i have that they need. there will always be another one some time.

    i dont think you can point fingers at people who have money and say they are bad coz there are some truely rotten poor/working class people too.

    at the end of the day i think it is a heart issue.
    there needs to be a balance between enjoying what you have earned and sharing it...

    as for nike shoes made in china... theres a whole lot of people who dont even have that.

    perspective.
