Frequently Iíve Wished
Poetry by Lance Landall

Very frequently Iíve wished, that I were someone wealthy, Yes, a multi-millionaire, whose income remained healthy. However, not for my sake, for thereíre many folk out there, Whose burdens could be lifted, if I had such wealth to share.

Such wealth I wouldnít parade, like many well-off folk do, For I think thatís rather cruel, given, what some are going through. íThough a home I do not have, just a humble one Iíd buy, Lest the mansion I purchased, someoneís prayer request deny.

I would buy my family, needy things theyíve gone without, And some pleasures theyíve not known, my family Iíd shout. But ímidst all Iíd do for them, I certainly wouldnít forget, Others far less fortunate, fighting hardship, ill health, or debt.

Iíd seek out those whoíre burdened, with hardship or failing health, And dispense unanimously, and generously, my wealth. Iíd live a humble lifestyle, to ensure more people got Whatever solved their problem, or at least, helped them a lot.

Each week Iíd withdraw money, for my family and I, But just enough for our needs, or, what we could truly justify. By acting in this manner, Iíd have even more to give, Any who are needy, like the starving, whoíve a right to live.

Personally, I think itís sad, that moneyís wrongly spent, On things that are not needed, while others, their lot lament. Many folk are suffering, and through no fault of their own, While others live palatially, like some king upon a throne.

Very frequently Iíve wished, that I were someone wealthy, Yes, a multi-millionaire, whose income remained healthy. For then I would have the chance, to help thousands via my wealth, Who each day throughout the year, suffer hardship or ill health.
