Money Is Important. Poem by SY Wong ...

Money Is Important.



The thing is, money is important
You need to buy to live
Even to buy a bag of salt
You need salt, you need money
If you have no money
You can't have a nice dress to put on
Even if you do, they think it is borrowed
You can forget about Jewelry
If you have no money
People will shun you
You cannot sit in a committee
Your house will be of wood instead of bricks
Or you'll have to rent
Whatever you cook..forget about it
Even the things you plant is considered cheap
Don't you dare dream about big cars
You couldn't afford a driving licence
You only have a few friends who care
You won't accept things from friends
Because you cannot afford to buy things back
If you have no money you can still live,
but your existence is shadowy.

COMMENTS OF THE POEM
Unwritten Soul 28 September 2017

Money is necessary but not everything, yes we need it to survive, but just like fire we need to cook and warm, it also can burn what we have...it just money is more appealing than fire...and because of its appealing value in people eyes, it creates poverty as monetary is everywhere ticket, not humanity....its true that we need money but money is not for everything.....sad but true issue
