I put money in real estate

in the stock market

in that high-yield CD.

Goosebumps pimple the skin.

How much will I make?

the mind wonders.


The balance rises

as I count the riches

a warm blanket of safety

across my life.


But then…always

the condo sits vacant

the Dow tumbles

I need cash and it’s tied up

in that darn CD.


I listen as the True Financial Advisor says,

Only one investment

offers safety now and forever.

Only one investment

pays limitless dividends

and eternal compounded interest.

Only one investment

is worth the effort.


All else is effect.


Invest in Me

that Inner Power says

and all will come to you.
