All is Nothing

Once you have it all
there is nothing more to gain
this is the cost 
and this is your pain
to have more
means to have less
to be wealthy 
you must be poor

with nothing in hand
you have everything
there is some much to give
and much to lose
only when you know the truth in it all

with it all 
you find no love
with it all 
you find no hope

with it all
you must realize
you can't buy any and everything

This is why 
all is nothing
