I was richer by«.I was richer by the books I readThe people I ledThey respected my wayIn having their sayI was richer byThe strides my mind leaptThe tears I weptThe fear I creptI was richer by the friendsI persisted withThe loners, the talkers, the ugly, the smuglyPolished like goldsmith and hardened like blacksmithI was richer by the criticism on selfFiltered by nuancesMy soul somehow repliesOpening its eyesI was richer by the truth I spokeThat I would not have to revokeTo feel embarrassed and caughtWith remorse fraughtI was richer by the promises I keptThe beliefs that I metThe smile that matteredMy knowledge blissfully smatteredI was richer by the poems I wroteThe comments n ratings I was blessed withThe reads that frequented my profileBy young, old n senileI was richer by the comments on my poemEncouragement in peculiar realmThe followers so novelLiterary tastes prevail
