The Rich Man!

"Arushi Ahuja"
The image is a prompt from Magpie Tales
I looked in the mirror but I saw not me,
For even I did not want to look back at me!
A cold shiver went up my spine,
Down fell the glass of expensive Wine...
I was rich and unloved,
But many hated me!
I ruled and governed,
But was never free...
I loved my kids,
but they din't love me back,
I loved my the riches,
But they mostly stayed in a bank...
I had no time to Love,
I had no time to Live,
I had no times for life's
joys so exclusive...
For I was obsessed with my deep pockets,
with my corrupt huge business,
My political prowess...
And a cold fear touched my heart,
For then I knew,
that none loved me and hated me too
