Money...$
What For?
Sharing
Not sure
For bills, need more
Money.
Money...
Plant a seed
It is what we all need
I want to plant you URGENTLY
A Money tree.
Money,
Is it for giving?
Money
High cost of living
Money.
Money,
Such crime
Money,
People doing time
Money.
Money...
Touching, everyones hands
Germs galore; who cares I have plans
For money.
Money...
Does it make the world turn
Yes, No
One day we will learn. $$$$$$$$$$$$

    The Blble says that the love of money is the root of all evil. You have written very responsively on this important subject! (Report) Reply

    Most of us always think of our everyday woes in terms of money. If I say people are happier without money or with less money, it is more of philosophical than reality, so I agree that we need money and during the process acquiring it, we should not sell our peace of mind! (Report) Reply

    There is nothing intrinsically wrong with money - we need it to pay our way in society. The problem is when greed takes over, and when we become obsessed with having more and more when there are those who are in genuine need. Interesting and provocative write. (Report) Reply

    The dreams of what we might do with money are almost definitely more pleasurable than the reality. But Lord give me the opportunity to find out! (Report) Reply

    Yes, another one of those things people say isn't everything. Difference is poor people don't get any. Good one, Lyn. (Report) Reply
