My thoughts on the pursuit of Materialism:

Standard

Absolute Materialism:

From fancy cars, to racks on racks.
From Heroin, to Cocaine & Crack.

We have such a dangerous, pathological thirst for things.

There’s just a destructive path and it never ceases.
There seems to be no cure for this deadly disease.

It’s like we’re paralyzed, by the venom of serpent stings.

There is a stench in the societal air.
Deceiving ourselves is just not fair.

We’re constantly chasing empty pleasures, because we are so shallow.
We try to find satisfaction in materialism, but our hearts are still hollow.

From Gucci, to Louis Vuitton & Rugby.
From Nike, to Fendi, Prada and Ballys.

We’re disillusioned, to the falsified good that they bring.

There is absolutely no limit to what we’ll consume.
There’s just indulgence, based upon our own rules.

It’s submission to a sad fantasy, instead of to a true king.

Allah is a better master for us, as opposed to desire.
It’s best to follow His guidance, before we all expire.
