The Ultimate Shopping Experience

As consumers in life,
We notice that there are two great offers everyday.
We can buy the flashy mass media message called ‘FEAR’
Or we can subscribe to the subtle voice inside named ‘LOVE’

I get horribly depressed when I consume FEAR.
The interest charged by it is a compounding one.
Always, it eats into my reserve of happiness.

On those days, when I avoid the temptation of the former,
And choose the simple offer of LOVE,
I feel liberated beyond measure.
My heart becomes kinder,
And I seem to walk lighter.
Even … the air smells fresher.

But for as long as I remain here,
I have to shop for my daily emotions.
Upon reflection, I understand,
The wisdom of being an informed consumer.
