    THIS A PAGE FROM HISTORY AND THANKZ call Da Speech !

    Have u ever heard someone say
    if i had money i'll do things my way

    Have u listen to the soundz of hearts
    and the thoughtz of mindz crossing

    Little do they know heart & soul family
    it's so hard to do when the battle comes
    WEALTH ~VS~ DA SATISFIED MIND
    I tell ya da truth !
    Money can't buy u back youth when ya ole
    true friendz when ya lonely or peace to ya soul
    Money can't buy warmth when ya cold
    just a hug sweet & bold
    money can't pave da way to heaven above
    only da hearts of love
    this i tell u so hard to find
    against da satisfied mind
    that comfort ya days left behind
    money is green but don't mean a thing
    when it comes to da mind and friendz of deed
    it's da satisfied mind
    Da wealthest person be blue and sad
    no friendz or true love they had
    compared to the one's wit da satisfied mindz
    and when my tyme come and mines run out
    i'll leave upon dis ole world friendz & loveones
    no doubt cause i've had da satisfied mind
    da heart of gold and a soul of GOD
    poor but wealthy without a dime
    tyme will shine in the grace of da mind
    i'm satisfied
    try mines......a feel free trust me
    and know you will hoover in depth
    and out shine wealth
    to my best friendz in cyberspace
    (They know who they are )
    and to my Love of heart
    and da main soul she know too
    dat i will be forever lovin u
    A page from HISTORY files
    Da yesteryears........... :heart: :huh: :heart:

    RICH,
    i enjoyed this powerfully true flow, much wealth of wisdom here.
    we obviously want both the financial wealth and the satisfied mind, but if we are in a position to choose just one over the other, the satisfied mind is the wise choice. 'cause money can't buy it.......
    enjoyed this much.

    Peace and Blessings

    I do see your point Rich. Although money is a big deal when you need it and don't have it, and I'm sure you don't disagree about that, what is the foundation of all we truly are inside, money can't buy. Such nourishment for the soul.

    Love and hope is GODLY
    money is evil ruler
    we need it to live but
    it can't buy true real love & bonding
    only kill dreamz and friendship
