Everybody’s talking about living dreams of grandeur

They want a house portfolio bigger than a manor

Since the topic’s sensitive, let us keep our manners

Writing down our problems will help define our answers

So, You Gotta

Money, money, in your hands in now it’s gone

Did you never learn your lesson from “The Richest Man in Babylon?”

You can have it flowing in like a constant river

You can have it work for you, and be a constant giver

Let us set a plan, with parameters to explain

First you build a dam to stop your financial drain

Start to amass your mass of capital gains

Keeping gold in your pocket can help begin setting the frame

“What are your needs” vs. “What do you want?”

“The Wealth that you have” vs “The Riches you flaunt”

To increase what goes in, you need to stop what goes out

By stopping the drainage, you prevent a financial drought

Producing, Providing Value, something that fulfills

Climb the mountaintop of passion over the hills

Once you’ve saved enough in yourself you should invest

High income skills are needed, there is no protest

Fake gurus and false courses, we all can detest

By Sander Sammy on Unsplash

Scam artists want our minds and wallets, like roaches infest

They sell you on the hopes and dreams, feeding you little bits by increments

Instead of them, Put Your

Getting rich quick is always the stuff of dreams

Developing true wealth, having multiple income streams

By Rolands Varsbergs on Unsplash

Yet gold flees from those who use it without wisdom

It demolishes false empires and establishes true kingdoms

By David Rodrigo on Unsplash

It takes time and practice, even years of such persistence

Once you start to grow it now, you begin to close the distance

After you’ve worked hard, you’re exhausted and already spent

By Annie Spratt on Unsplash

If you own your domicile, you won’t have to pay rent

Make sure to set aside and provide for your future

Emergencies and life expectancy will make your purse need a suture

Develop your own powers to become your own master

Once you’re more than skillful, affluence comes faster

Now let’s get out there and put our
