A free verse poem of purpose.


Driven by Cause, not Money

My eyes donít glow by gold,
They glitter through purpose.

Money wonít drive self-ambition,
Reason motivates my engine.

Desires to succeed ignites a mission,
Starting a campaign to win success.

By staying honorable to the quest,
Coins canít purchase my loyalty.

Cause will always be my intent in life,
Not artificial happiness thatís printed.

Very well expressed. Without a good cause there is no good quest.

Money is needed to pay the bills of everyday living, but cause is the driving force to success. My parents both were killed because they believed in a "cause," leaving me an orphan at the age of 10. Yet, I admire their dedication to the "cause," which continues to drive me as an adult. Love the poem.
