Pinnacle?

Todays world is bliss
(if you practice avarice)
it's a paradise untold
(if you'll grovel for some gold)
there's a coolness you can feel
(if you like touching steel)
what an age beyond compare
(for those without a care).

This is one of my biggest fears - is this it? As one of my favorite poems says: 'Each age is a dream that is dying or one that is coming to birth.'

Money (enough of it) does not equate to happiness - although it helps...

Another fear I hadn't considered--that our lack of trust would be justified. I love the ironic pairing of statements in the piece.
