Getting Everything You Want Can Be Bad for You: Sunday Writing Prompt

On The Other Side of Nothing is everything you’ve wished,

From Suddenly in Love to suddenly getting very rich.

There are no limits on what you can do or where you play,

But remember that in life for everything you must pay.

It is a Hollow Entreaty to say I wasn’t told of the pain

And suffering possible when everything you try to gain.

For the price of having it all can become very steep,

As worrying about losing it all will surely steal your sleep.

The First Day of this new life might bring you much joy,

But the thought that it will continue is the devil’s ploy.

The hours you must work to gain this new-found wealth

Will take a toll and you certainly will lose your health.

So, don’t try to have everything that your eyes can view,

For having everything you wish truly isn’t good for you.

Poem written for the Sunday Writing Prompt from Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie: It’s All in the Title. We were given ten titles to choose from to write a story or a poem around them all or some of them. I highlighted the titles used. This was fun!
