Econ 101.

Demand calls to supply,
supply yields to demand.
If you’re looking for a beach,
we’ve got plenty of sand!
If you’re looking for water,
the ocean is right here;
if you need to breathe,
we’ve even got an atmosphere!
If you’re looking for heat,
we’ve got sunlight every day –
it still pokes through the clouds
when skies are
the greyest of greys.

Existence is full,
from Fullness it was born.
Our universe, earth, and homes,
were lovingly given, not tearfully torn
from Fullness, which is ever full
though it is ever-giving.
Fullness can never run out –
Fullness is ever loving, ever living.
This existence, this life,
has enough for all our needs –
what it doesn’t have room for
is all our different greeds.

So Cool Runnings, do not worry,
put your feet up on Life’s beach;
there is enough to go around
for everyone and every each!
Drink from our Mother’s waters –
Fullness gives birth to Fullness –
but be content with just enough
because excess is its own illness.
The sun gives equally
to every being on this globe –
put down the fear that you hold dear,
breathe in, breathe out, and know.
