What’s more important

Bricks and mortar

Material things

Are the more important

Than human beings

Why do we strive so much

To achieve these things

Yet lose touch of love

With people around you

Family and friends

Like we treat living

As a competition

Seeing if we can accrue

Big, better and more than you

Yet the sad thing is that

That honest truth

Is all these things

You can’t take with you

Unlike the love of people

That are all around

Which we can take with us

Even as we are lowered

Into the ground.
