What wealth really is.
Our eyes tell the story, when we look we can see, a man of obvious wealth, impeccably dressed, all the best.
Clearly he has it all, or so it seems. Fine clothes, fine wine, any and all are at his beckon call.
But it's what we can't see that hurts him as he swallows his gin; there is an emptiness inside and it's growing within.
One glance and we think that he has it all and yet he knows that his lot is terribly small.
Sadly for him, what he wants just cannot be bought; although he'd give his Porche, his Rolex, the lot.
And while our families gather at least once a week, and we play with the grandkids and a great meal we will eat, he sits alone in a bar, knowing that we have it all.
